Your Library . . . Online!
Your library card is great for more than just checking out books. It gives you free access to online resources, e-books, and even computer help.
Online Card Catalog
Click anywhere you see our O.W.L. logo to access our online card catalog. You can search for any book in our library, and all the other libraries in our consortium! You can access your account to view your current check-outs, renew eligible items, and place items on hold. **Please review our “Check-Out Policy” for more information.**
If it is the first time logging in, you will need your library card number (no spaces) and your PIN will have been set to your last name. Once you have accessed your account, please set a new PIN. If you have issues, feel free to call us!
Not interested in checking out physical items? You can register for a free e-card! Look for the blue “Register for a Library Card” button on our catalog. Fill out the form and start accessing all of our online material. If you decide to get a physical card later, just stop into the library and let us know you have an O.W.L. e-card.
