What is my card number?

Your Library Card Pin

When you sign up for a Library card, we assign your PIN to be the last 4 digits of the primary phone number, or you can request a PIN of your choosing.

Changing your PIN

If an email address is set up for your account, then your PIN can be reset via My Account by clicking “forgot my PIN” (an email will be sent with further instructions). Otherwise, Circulation clerks can reset your PIN at the Check Out Desk.

PINs must be all numeric characters and can contain between 4 and 20 characters.
