FAQ

How long is my library card valid and how do I renew it?

Eagle Valley Library District patron cards are valid for two years, after which time they must be renewed. Library cards can be renewed by telephone or in person at any library branch.

How do I renew items checked out on my card?

Library materials may be renewed online with your library card number. To renew items online, click on "My Account" above and then click on "Log In" and enter your name and library card number.  

To renew all items, click on the "Renew All" button. If you only wish to renew certain items, click the box(es) preceding the item(s) in the list, and the click on "Renew Selected Items". If an item may not be renewed it will say "ON HOLD" in red next to the due date of the item. You can also call your local branch and request items renewed over the phone during library hours. Have your library card ready as staff will need it to complete the renewal.

There are also several cases where you cannot renew items checked out to you. Renewals will beblocked if:

  • There are outstanding fees or fines of more than $5.00 on your card.
  • Your card has expired or if your card will expire prior to the new due date.
  • There is a request on by other library customer for the item.

Renewal dates are from the date renewed, not the date material is due.

How do I apply for a library card?

To get a library card, you must present proof of a valid mailing address (i.e. a piece of canceled mail) and photo identification.  Proof of your physical address is not necessary.  If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must be present, show proof of a valid mailing address, and sign the card.

The first library card is FREE but there is a $1.00 replacement charge for a lost or stolen card. Treat your library card as you would your credit card; report a lost or stolen card immediately. Always bring your library card when checking out items. You are responsible for all materials borrowed on your library card from the time they are checked out until they are checked in.

Do you have meeting rooms available for the public to use?

In keeping with its mission, the Eagle Valley Library District offers use of its meeting rooms to local community non-profit groups holding meetings or programs.  Use of the District’s meeting rooms does not constitute endorsement by the District, its staff, or its trustees of the viewpoints presented. Groups using the meeting rooms for programs not sponsored by the District may not publicize their events in any manner which suggests library sponsorship or affiliation.

Programs sponsored by the District are given scheduling priority. Preference is also given to groups whose meetings are free and open to the public. Programs will be cancelled if the library is closed. Regularly scheduled recurring meetings are discouraged in order to insure equitable access to the facilities for the entire community.  The use of alcoholic beverages is prohibited unless special permission is granted.

The Director will establish administrative procedures for the implementation of htis policy.  Exceptions to this policy may be made at the discretion of the library director.  The director shall report such exceptions to the Board of Trustees at its regularly scheduled meetings.

Contact your local branch for more information and room availability. 

Do you have wireless access?

Yes, each of the libraries provides wireless access that is open and free to the public during library hours.
