PI N (Personal Identification Number)
Anyone can search the catalog, but to place a hold, renew or view your library record, you will need your library card number (the 10 digit number located under the barcode on the back of your library card) and a PIN. To obtain a PIN, you will need to come to the library and bring identification with you to verify your identity. This is necessary to assure the confidentiality of our library patron records. If you forget or lose your PIN, you will need to come to the library with proper ID.
To place a hold, you must be logged on to the catalog with your user ID and PIN. Simply locate the item you want in the online catalog and then click term Place Hold on the left side of the screen. Indicate where you want to pick up the item.
When you place a hold via iBistro©, items may not be immediately available. You will receive notification when the items are available for pickup. If you need the items immediately, please call your library.
WebTV uses "caching" to cut down the time it takes to download additional pages from the internet. Our catalog creates webpages dynamically and does not have static web pages, so it cannot be cached. In addition, our catalog has security features in place that do not work with caching and proxy servers so that each catalog search remains private.
Because these two technologies do not work hand in hand, WebTV users may not be able to access our catalog.
Links to the Catalog
Do NOT create a "bookmark," "favorites," or link to the catalog past this point. Because catalog session links are dynamic and URLs are created on-the-fly, future sessions will not connect properly using an old URL. Again this is a security feature to protect your privacy.
Check back often for further updates.
