About PINs

You will need a PIN to access your account, renew or request materials online, and to access many of the eLibrary resources. Your PIN is any number, word, or set of characters that you choose. The first time you log in with your library account barcode, the login screen should prompt you to create a PIN for your account. The PIN must be at least four characters, and no more than eight characters long.
