How do I get a library card?
Bring a photo ID to the library and fill out a registration form. Your ID must have your current address. If you are under the age of 18, a parent will need to sign the form with you.
What can I do with my library card?
You can check out books, magazines, graphic novels, video games, DVDs and CDs. Your library card lets you access our wireless internet in the library as well as connect you to over a hundred online databases for research. You can place a hold on a book with a waiting list or request that a book be sent from any of the 28 member libraries in the system.
How long can I keep my materials?
DVDs and Bluerays-3 days
Video games-3 days
What if I need more time?
If you need more time with your materials, you can go online to renew them. Access your account from the catalog page and sign in with your name and library card number. Select the items you wish to keep longer and click renew. If no other patrons are waiting for that item, you can extend the due date. Books can be renewed up to 3 times, for a total 12 week rental period.
What if I have a fine?
No problem! We all forget to return our books from time to time. The fines accrue daily though, so it’s important to return the items as soon as you realize they are late. You can pay your fine at the front desk. Any fines over $10 means you can’t check out any items until the balance is paid, but once it is, you’re free to check out anything! Don’t feel like the fines should stop you from using the library.
What if I lost a book?
First of all, did you look behind the couch? How about in the car? Still can’t find it? Come into the library then and let someone at the circulation desk know. They will tell you how much the book costs and once you’ve paid for it, the librarian will replace it. Simple as that!
I can’t find what I’m looking for in the library. Help!
If you’ve tried our catalog and can’t find what you’re looking for, or you need some homework help, or even just a recommendation for a good book, then ask for our Youth Services librarian. She can help you find a resource for a project, information for a report, or a great book to read over the weekend. That’s what she’s here for!
I want to volunteer at the library. How do I do that?
Come in to the library and fill out a volunteer application. Then, we will call you when we have space available. We always love having help! Teen volunteers shelve books, keep shelves in order, and sometimes assist on special projects. Here are the requirements:
Must be 16 or older.
Must be available to commit to at least 20 hours a year at the library.
Must attend a volunteer training session before starting. These are usually held once a month.
I have an idea for a program or event I want to have at the library. Who do I tell my idea?
Great! We love hearing new ideas for programs. Our Youth Services librarian, is always happy to hear suggestions. Program planning always requires many considerations, but feel free to contact her with ideas, thoughts, and requests.
