Information about your Library during the Covid-19 Closure

Can I get a Library Card while the Library is closed?

  • Yes.  If you don't have a current SAILS Library Card you can sign up for one online.  Your new, online card:
    • will be good for at least two months and is active immediately.
    • will enable you to access the Library's online resources.
    • will need to be replaced with a physical card when the Library reopens.

What if I have a card, but I forgot my PIN?

  • Your PIN is usually the last 4 digits of the phone number you had when you signed up for your card.
  • Still can't login?  Go to the SAILS Library Account Help page and enter your 14 digit Library Card number.  Your PIN will be sent to you.
