Checking Out

Library Card Use

For your own convenience and security, please always present your library card at Circulation when checking out. Proper identification is required if you do not have your library card with you—a driving license or other photo ID is ideal. A card is required for check-out at any time when our circulation system is offline.

Self-Check Stations

Self-check stations are located in the Bossidy Commons, in Children’s Services, and on the Upper Level near the Main Street entrance. These stations use a special radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, so they operate differently from what you may be used to. Some transactions cannot be completed at self-service stations. Always watch the screen for instructions. Staff are standing by to help with questions or problems. Try Self-Check today—it’s fast and easy!

Check-out or renewal will be blocked if there are fines or other charges of $15 or more on your account or if your card is expired or due to expire imminently.
