Getting a KRLS Library Card PIN
You will also be given a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when registering for a library card. The PIN is needed for placing your own requests and for viewing selected information in your library account. A PIN is a 4 digit number that provides an extra level of security when using your library card to reserve books, to access some online databases, or to look up your personal information in the catalog.
You will be asked to choose a PIN when you register for your library card. If you do not choose one, we will use the last 4 digits of your library card number.
If you currently have a Kitchigami Regional Library System card and would like to get a PIN, please visit, email or call any branch library so that a PIN can be created for your account.
Library Account Information
Borrowers are able to see what materials they have borrowed, what requests they have placed, cancel outstanding requests that are no longer needed, and view any fees due on their account. You will need your 13-digit library card number and your PIN to access the library borrower account information on either the library's catalog workstations or through the library's web site at your home, work or other off-site location.
What should I do if I lose my Library Card?
If you lose your library card report the loss at once to any branch library, by phone or in person. You are responsible for materials taken out with the card until the card is reported lost or stolen. Once a new card is purchased your lost card will be inactivated. You will be asked to pay a small replacement fee.
You can use your library card at all nine branches and the mobile library in the Kitchigami Regional Library System. Your library card is renewed every year at any branch.
