What should I do if I lose my library card?

FAQ: What should I do if I lose my library card?


Please contact us immediately and report your card as lost!

You are responsible for anything checked out using your card, even if that person isn't you. Telling us to set your card to "lost" will prevent any future abuse of your card and account.

You may purchase a new card for $2, or you may be eligible to receive a free card if your account is up for renewal (which occurs every two years).

Alternatively, you may present your ID (driver's license, state ID card, etc.) for staff-facilitated access to your account and library resources, but there will be limitations on what you are able to do in certain cases.

Please do not re-apply for a library card unless directed to do so by library staff.
