Introducing Our New Online Catalog

screenshotWe are excited to introduce our new online catalog, powered by BiblioCommons. The site enables you to keep track of your borrowing history, contribute ratings and reviews, create favorites lists or topic guides to share with others, get personalized recommendations, send and receive messages with other catalog users and even catalog your own home library. And each time you create a list or add comments, you are building a better catalog for your community’s library!

You can search the catalog at any time, but if you want to check your account, place a hold, or use any of the other features, you have to register and create a username, a one-time process. Once you have, you can log in with either your username or your library card barcode number.

Registering and Creating Your Username
  • Start by logging in with your library card barcode number and password (PIN).
  • On the next page, information should already be entered. If you are not a minor, you may want to enter your birth date. If you do not, the system will assume that you are a minor, and for safety reasons, some features will be unavailable to you. Children under the age of 13 will not be able to send or receive messages, create a username, or write comments.
  • If you want, enter your email address (It will be used if you forget your password (PIN) and request a reset. We also use your email address to send you notifications of items ready for pickup, coming due or overdue.).
  • Next, create your username.
  • Read the Terms of Use and click the Terms of Use box.
  • Click on Register.

Your username is how you will be identified. If you want, however, you can adjust your settings to keep your activities private.

Once you’ve logged in to your account, please feel free to use the feedback box at the bottom of the page to share your thoughts.
