1. Having a problem with your Library Barcode? Is it valid?
Check your Library barcode expiration status and see the spelling of your last name as it appears in our system. It is possible that we have an incorrect or alternate spelling of your last name or that your barcode has expired or is otherwise invalid. Check that here.
