Search the Library Catalog

The catalog can be searched by all, but to request materials or to view your patron record, you will need your library card.

Using your library card online

Your BARCODE NUMBER is the 14 digit number located on the back of your library card. You must create a PIN (Personal Identification Number) before you can check your records or request a book. On subsequent visits you must enter your PIN # when requesting materials. Library staff does not have access to patron PIN's so you must create one you can remember. When requesting an inter-library loan, you MUST choose a pick-up location from the drop down box or the system will not accept your request. Please select your library, NOT Pioneerland Library System.

With your library card you can do several different things online besides searching the catalog. You can:

  • Place holds on materials presently checked out
  • Request materials through Interlibrary Loan
  • Look at your record to see what materials you have checked out
  • Renew materials online

For questions about using the online catalog, please call the Information Desk at 320-235-3162. Our reference staff will be happy to help you.
