My card has expired. How can I get it renewed?

  • Your library membership card is valid for three years, after which time it expires and needs to be renewed.
  • To renew your card, please visit one of our 20 branch locations. If you have concerns about visiting a library in person to renew your card, please call one of our branches or email us via our online Ask Us! service to discuss options.
  • When renewing, acceptable identification (See What is acceptable identification?) must be shown.
  • Any outstanding fees must be paid at the time of renewal.
  • Once a year you will be asked to show current identification to confirm your address and pay outstanding fees and charges.
  • Non-Resident cards are different and must be renewed annually.

My library books and materials are very overdue. How much will I have to pay?

Nothing! Library overdue fines and DVD/Blu-ray borrowing fees were eliminated earlier this year.
