Why do I have to bring my library card every time I visit the library?
The library requires cardholders to present their IFL cards when materials are borrowed so that the materials will be checked out to the proper account. Our system also works better if the number is scanned from the card. There may be other residents who have the same name or similar names, and by asking to scan your card library staff members are making sure that your account remains secure. [Please DO NOT allow others to check out materials on your card. If they do, you are legally responsible for any activity on your card.]
