Borrowing/My Account

How do I renew my materials without going to the library?

  • You may login to "my account" at the top of this page.
  • Library materials may be renewed by telephone 24/7 (leave message with name and library account number).
  • Items may be renewed twice, unless it is NEW or on a waiting list.

How do I request an item?

 
  • Do a search, identify the title you want to request.
  • To request it in the catalog you may either click on the word "Available" on the Results (hit list) page, or click on the Request tab on the Record (single-title display) page.
  • If you have not already logged in to, you'll be prompted to do so at this point. Log in with your library account number. If you do not already have a VuFind username, click on Create New Account. Your account needs to be "profiled" with your library borrower ID. Once you've set this up, you never have to worry about it again (unless your borrower ID changes). If you've never told VuFind what your library borrower ID is, then go to the Your Account page and click on the User Account tab at the bottom of the list on the right. Enter your borrower ID, last name and library affiliation.
  • Select the location at which you would like to pick up the item and submit the request.
  • In the future, all you'll need to do is sign on with your username and password. You won't need to remember your borrower ID (unless you've decided to use that as your username) in order to request materials via the library catalog.

How can I pay my fines?

Library fines may be paid at any Grand County Library District branch by cash, check or credit card. Fines may be paid by phone via credit card only. Please contact your local branch library for additional information. Overdue fines are $.20 per day per item.  

Why is it important to log off?

As with any online account, it is recommended when you have finished requesting holds, renewing items or paying fees that you "log out" of your library account for privacy and security reasons. If you do not log out, other users may be able to view or change your information. For additional security, it is recommended that you also close your web browser.

How long can I keep the items I have checked out?

  • Books, audiobooks, musical instruments, MP3 players and DVD players may be checked out for a period of 3 weeks.
  • DVD's, VHS, magazines and music CD's may be checked out for a period of 7 days.
  • Items may be renewed twice unless the item is NEW or on a waiting list.
  • Electronic resources may vary in their due dates.
  • We offer a free interlibrary loan service to our patrons. This service may be used for materials that are not owned by our library. Interlibrary loans may not be renewed.
Loan rules apply only to Grand County Library District items. Items from other libraries may have different loan rules and renewal policies.
