About Usernames and Passwords in the PINES Catalog

The username is your 14 digit library card number.

The password is your PIN (personal identification number.)

If you do not know your PIN you MUST present yourself with your library card at a PINES library to get one. PINs will not be given out over the telephone, fax machine, or e-mail.

The first time you login to the PINES Catalog you must change your PIN to a secure password. Once you login you have the ability to change your username, your password, and contact information for placing holds, so we know how to notify you that your hold items are available for pickup.

Why should you log into your account?

  • To place your own holds
  • To find out what you have checked out
  • To renew your checked out items
  • To find out if you owe any money
  • To create, edit and share bookbags
  • To set your own search and other preferences for Catalog use
