Printable Passes

You can print most of our passes from home! Printable passes can be reserved and printed even when the library is closed, and they don’t need to be returned to the library. The system will only give you one chance to print, right after you register. If you have trouble, please give us a call.

Traditional Passes

Traditional passes cannot be printed, and must be picked up and returned to the library.

These passes may be picked up after 1:00 pm the day before the reservation date, and must be returned by 12:00 noon the day after the reservation date. The Library is closed Sundays, so passes for that day need to be picked up on Saturday. They may be returned in the bookdrop in their protective sleeve.

The late fee for traditional passes is $10 per day.
