A YEAR FOR RENEWAL

It sounds like a New Years resolution but I'm talking library cards.  This year adult library cards will be up for review to ensure your contact information is accurate.  Updating will require you to visit the library and present proof of a qualifying address and a picture ID.  A driver's license is preferred, but a passport along with a utility or similiar bill is fine as well.  It is not necessary to replace your existing card, once renewed you can continue to use the same card and ID number.  

You may only update your own card.  Accounts must be in good standing with balances below $10.  You can renew your card before it expires on your next visit to the library; once expired you won't be able to checkout, renew, place holds or download eBooks.  Thank you for understanding, bring your ID and leave the library renewed!
