Can I check out items or use my account without my library card?

FAQ: Can I check out items or use my account without my library card?

Answer:

Your library card is required to use your library account. This includes checking out items, requesting items, renewing items, updating contact information, viewing and paying fines, viewing items currently checked out, using certain online resources, etc.

In the absence of a library card, library staff reserve the right to request your photo ID (state or federal) to confirm your identity and allow you to use your account (in person only).

When contacting the library by phone, email or online chat, your library card number is required for any transactions that require access to your library account.

If you've lost your card, please contact us right away.
