DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION?
We have an answer!
Below you will find answers to the most common questions you may hae about your local library.
Q: "How do I access my library account?"
A: Click on the “Our Catalog” button on the homepage (under the "Library Links" section), then click on “Please Login” at the top right corner.
Your username is your library card number. Ask the library staff for your password, it will probably be either your address numbers or the last four digits of your phone number. You are able to change it to something you can remember, if you would like.
Then go to “Your Account” in the top right corner. There, you can see what items you have checked out and have previously checked out. You can also reserve and renew items. Here you can even change or update your information and preferences.
From here you can also search the library’s catalog. If you go up to the search bar at the top of the page and type in something, such as a subject of interest like “crafts” or an author you like or even a specific title, you will get results of the items we have here at the library. You can also see if they’re checked out and you can place reserves, too.
Q: "Can I reserve books from home?"
A: Yes! Sign-in to your library account and search the title you would like to place a hold on. Expand the record, then press the blue "Place Hold" button beneath the cover image. On the next screen, find and select the next "Place Hold" button.
Q: "Is there a separate study area in the library?"
A: Yes. There is a small study room available for scheduled use. Call ahead of your visit to ensure the room is open for use at (989) 843-6522 or ask the librarians at the circulation desk to pencil you in at your desired date and time.
Q: "Do you have a fax machine?"
