  •  
  • $1 for a replacement library card
  • 20¢ per day for late adult and young adult items
  • 10¢ per day for late childrens items
  • $6 maximum fine per item
  • 20¢ per side for printing or copying
  • What do I do if I lose my card?
     
  • In the event that your library card is lost or stolen, let the library know immediately. We will put a block on your account so no one will be able to use your card to check out items in your name.
  • To replace your card bring a photo ID and $1 to the circulation desk. Replacement cards take overnight to work on the internet computers.
  • How do I renew items?
     
  • Click on Patron Information above and enter the requested information to access your account. Click Checked Out and sort the list by Due Date. Click the box next to each item you wish to renew then click on Renew Selected Items. Note the new due date for each item. Some items may not renew due to:
  •  
  • outstanding holds [requests] by other people
  • item already renewed two times
  • item is in the Browse collection (green slip at bottom of book cover)
  • item is an Interlibrary Loan or SuperSearch item
  • fines/late charges of $10 or more
  • item on account is overdue by one week or more

    What is an e-card?
     
  • With your e-card, you have 24/7 access to the Solano, Napa, and Partners (SNAP) Consortium's virtual services. The e-card allows residents of Solano and Napa counties to log-in and use our electronic resources and place holds from home without first coming to a library to get a card. If you have a library card already, you do not need an e-card.
  • I have an e-card. Why should I get a full access library card?
     
  • With a full access library card you will be able to check out materials and use computers at all of the public libraries in Solano and Napa Counties.
  • How do I convert my e-card to a full access library card?
     
  • Stop by the Circulation Desk and tell the clerk that you would like to convert your e-card to a full access library card. You will need to sign a form and provide a issued photo id and proof of your mailing address.
