Borrowing/My Account

How many holds can I have on my account at one time?

Cardholders are limited to ten holds at a time.

How do I search the catalog?

"Search catalog" at the top left hand side of your screen will take you to the shared on line public access catalog. You may search by title, author, keyword or "advanced search." You may also filter by library or district location. Be sure to mark the correct "pick up location" if you are requesting any materials be delivered to your favorite Grand County Library District branch location.

What is "my library account"?

This online service provides library account information to Grand County Library District card holders. You may place requests for many types of materials to be held for you at a specific location. You can also determine what materials are overdue, what materials are being held for you, and what fees you may owe. This service can be accessed from any library computer or from any computer that has Internet access.

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.
