Lost your Library Card?

It is very important that you let the Library know that your card is lost or stolen. You are responsible for all materials checked out on the card. When you report the card lost, we will inactivate it, thus protecting you from any unwanted charges. Replacement cards can be purchased for a $2 fee.
