Your Library Card PIN

Getting a PIN
If you have never had a PIN for your library account, you will need to contact the library staff  by phone 319-398-5123 or by coming into the library and asking at a service desk. You cannot get your first PIN via email or the library’s online services; this is to protect your account information.

If you call the library, be sure to have your library card number. You will also be asked to confirm some of the personal information in your account. If you come into the library, be sure to have some identification (a driver’s license is ideal!) besides your library card. These requirements are for your security.

Using your PIN
Once you have a PIN you can access your account online. From the catalog enter your library card number and PIN at the top of the page. See the image below.
