Begin this process on your computer by initiating a search in the “SEARCH CATALOG” box at the top of almost every page on this website or by clicking the “MY ACCOUNT”  tab at the top of most pages. You will need your library card and you must create a password in order to use this feature.

Use the MY ACCOUNT tab to control your account—besides requesting new items, you can see if previously requested items have been shipped, and how much longer you have to pick them up after they have arrived, find out when all your due dates are and renew items here.
