Do You Have Your PIN?
Starting August 2, 2017, you will need to use a PIN when you log in to your account through the library's catalog. We are requiring PINs for added security and for better integration with library software developed by third-party vendors. These vendors expect libraries to use PINs.
PINs can be from four to eight characters, letters or numbers, but no special characters. They are not case-sensitive.
Staff will assist you in adding a PIN to your account before August 2, 2017. After that you can add your own PIN online. If you forget your PIN, you can reset it yourself or you can ask a staff member for help.
