Manage Your Account On-line

It is really easy to renew your  materials without ever contacting the library!  If you have an account in good standing (fines for the entire family less than $4.00 and no items lost) you can renew from your phone, tablet or computer.  This is really handy when you remember you have items out when the library is closed!  Simply access our webpage (which you are on if you see this message).  In the upper right corner under the banner you will see “Hillsboro On-Line Catalog”.  Click on that.  You will be asked to log in– upper right corner).  Select your library — Hillsboro Public Library; Username is your patron barcode number.  The password for setting up your account the first time is the word<userpass>.

At this point you may search our card catalog.  You may also set your own preferences and see you account by clicking in the upper right hand corner <My Account>.  This will take you to a screen with options to see what you have checked out, items on hold, lost, etc.  You  may also change your settings.  If you have a new e-mail, phone number, address or other contact in formation you may make changes in “My Profile”.

Try this and let us know what you think!  If you have forgotten your patron number, we can supply that information with proper ID.  If you have forgotten your password, we can reset it to default for you at the library.  Just call us 620-947-3827.
