Frequently asked questions:
I don't have a PIN, how do I log in to my account? The first time you log-in, the PIN should default to the last four digits of your primary phone. If you are having trouble, call the LIbrary for assistance in re-setting the PIN.
I am getting so many notices now -why? If you have signed up for email notifications, you should receive a pre-overdue notice 3 days before your item(s) become due, 2 late notices, and a final bill if your item has not been returned.These notices will come from Biblio.org, so please check your SPAM email folder if you have not received any. If you have a Library Elf account, you will also receive notices from libraryelf.com. Library Elf is a separate, add-on  service.
