Changing Your Password

In order to change your password you must be logged out of your account.

If you have an e-mail address listed on your library account then an e-mail will be sent to you so that you can reset the password. If you do not have an e-mail address on your account then you will need to stop into the library and have a staff member reset your password.

In the Password Reset e-mail you will see a code. Go back to the catalog login screen and enter the code.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After entering the code you will be able to type in a new password.  Unfortunately, usernames cannot be changed. You will still need to enter your library card number as your username.

If you have any questions please stop by the front desk or give us a call at 603-474-2044.
