How do I make a list?
You add items to your Library Cart, then save them to a list. Here's how: Find items in the catalog and click "Add to Cart". Then click on "My Library Cart" at the top of the page. Select all or some of the items in your Cart. Then click "Save to List". You can add the items to an existing list, or name a new one. To see lists you've already made, login to your account and click on "My Lists."
How do I place, freeze or cancel a hold?
Please see our Holds information page for step-by-step instructions.
What is a username and what is a PIN - how do I get one or update it?
A username is an optional feature. If you set one, your username will be your alias on hold slips and can also be used to log into your account in place of your card number. A username can be set, reset or removed from the "Change My Info" section of your online account. Usernames are case sensitive and must be between 6 and 25 characters (letters and number only, no special characters).
A PIN is a four-digit Personal Identification Number required for online account and self-check access. A PIN provides an additional level of security for your private account information. Your PIN can be set or reset online following the instructions on the My Account login screen, or from computer stations at the Library. When you request a new PIN, an email is sent to the email address on file. You must use the link in this email to complete the process.
