Can I still apply for a library card?

What about the items I have at home?

  • Due dates for all items have been extended. Please keep your materials at home rather than placing them in the book drop. 
  • No fees or fines will be charged during this period.

How do I sign in to manage my library card account?

  • By default, your password is the last four digits of the phone number you listed when you signed up for an account. You can reset your password or contact us for help resetting a password. 
  • You can use your library card number to sign into your OverDrive account. If you are an Instant Digital Cardholder, you will type your phone number into the sign in box.
