Welcome to our community!

The library has a variety of free services available to you and we are always here to answer questions and help you navigate things. You can read below about all we have to offer, and you can call, email, or stop in anytime to ask for help.

How your library card works:

  • Your account number is located on the barcode of your library card
  • Your PIN is automatically set to the last 4 digits of your phone number unless you ask us to make it something else
  • If you can’t remember your PIN or you can’t find your library card let us know, we can tell you what your account # and PIN are or we can issue a new card
  • You do not need to have your card with you to check things out, but be prepared to confirm your information for us if you don’t

Fines, Fees, & Blocks:

Overdue Fines: We are a fine free library and will not charge you for overdue items!

Lost Item Fees: If you keep an item so long that it goes to lost the cost of the item will be billed to your account, but if you bring the item back the bill will be removed.

Blocked Account: If you owe $10.00 or more your account will be blocked, preventing you from checking out any more items, but you only have to get the bill below $10.00 and your account will be unblocked.

  • Books, Large Type, and Audiobooks all check out for 21 days and will automatically renew twice, unless someone else is waiting for them
