In order to place holds,* renew items, and access other information regarding your library account, you will need to login to the library catalog as follows:
- User ID - enter your library card barcode number without any spaces
- PIN - the default PIN is changeme.
If you have changed your PIN and are having difficulties logging in, please visit one of our service desks or call us at (562)567-9900. Once you have logged in, you may change your PIN. Disregard any spaces requiring an "ALT User ID."
The library catalog is unavailable daily from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. for system maintenance.
*Note: A $1.00 charge will be added to your account for each hold placed. Holds should be placed when an item is currently checked out and you would like to be placed in line for the next available copy. If you place a hold, you will receive a notice in the mail when the item becomes available. It will be held for you for 10 days.
If an item is checked in and you would like it set aside, you may call the library and ask that it be saved at the front desk at no charge. The library will save a book for 3 days.
