Attention READS Patrons

Your library card NEVER Expires, but it does go out of date and if you haven’t been IN THE LIBRARY to use it in 2 or more years it will be deleted from our system, causing you to no longer be able to use it with the R.E.A.D.S. program.

Please click the link below and fill out the Questions to update your account so that you will not experience any delays in receiving books from your R.E.A.D.S./Overdrive Account. If you have any questions please call the library @ 684-7323 to speak with either Margaret or Lis Ann.
