PIN (Personal Identification
Anyone can search the catalog, but to place a hold,
renew items or view your library record, you will need your library card
number (the 10 or 14 digit number on the back of your library card) and a
PIN. To obtain a PIN, you will need to come to the library and show
identification. This insures 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.
How to Place Holds
To place a hold, type a title or author or subject
into the search box and click on SEARCH. When the results appear, scroll
until you find the item you are wanting. Click on the blue PLACE HOLD
link to the left. A new window will appear. Enter your user ID (library card
number), PIN and select a pick-up location. Finally, click on PLACE HOLD and
you are done. Certain categories of books may not be placed on hold
including reference books, "Top Ten books," school collection,
and some DVD movies. If you try to place a hold on any of these items,
you will receive an error message such as: "No items qualified for
hold--please see librarian for help." When you place a hold via WebCat©, items may not be immediately available.
You will be notified when the items are available for pickup either by
mail or e-mail. If you need the items immediately, please call your local
The latest books (including books and large-print
books) by the authors listed below cannot be placed on hold and are not
visible in the catalog. These popular books circulate quicker by having
them available at the local library instead of waiting to be delivered
between branches. Please be assured that we will have the latest books by
these authors available as soon as they are received and processed.
Please check with your local library for availability.
"Top-Ten +" Authors: David Baldacci, Sandra
Brown, Lee Child, Mary Higgins Clark, Janet Evanovich,
Sue Grafton, John Grisham, Charlaine Harris, Stephen King, Karen Kingsbury, Beverly Lewis, James Patterson, Nora Roberts,
Nicholas Sparks and Danielle Steel.
WebTV uses "caching" to cut down the time
it takes to download additional pages from the internet. Our catalog
creates dynamic webpages so it cannot be
cached. In addition, the catalog has security features 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,"
"favorite," 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.
