Going on a trip? – The Circulation Staff can put a hold on
any outstanding requests you may have so you will get them when you
return. Just stop by and let the staff know your travel dates.
E-mails and text messages – Our computer program allows
patrons to receive texts and/or
e-mails for notification of reserved items and overdue notices. If
you are interested in this service, please talk to a member of our
PIN Numbers – Don’t forget to take advantage of a PIN number
(password) for your account. With a PIN, you can search the entire
POLARIS system, see what items you have out, and request and renew
books from home.
Gift Certificates – Need a gift idea? You can purchase a one
year Library card for an individual or complete family that lives
out of the library district. We will provide a gift certificate for
presenting, and the recipient can bring it in, along with a photo ID
and proof of address to receive their own Library Card.
Book Clubs - The Annex Building Circulation Desk collects
reading lists for all the Book Clubs in the area. So if you can’t
remember what you read or what you are supposed to read, we have you
covered. Drop off your lists at the Circulation Desk, or e-mail
