View Your Own Record

Select this option from the main menu of the Tabor Library Catalog. Enter your name, ID#, and PIN. If you have not created a PIN, you will be prompted to do so. A PIN may consist of up to 30 alpha and/or numeric characters. Once you have entered your record, you may view items checked out and their due dates, renew materials and place holds. Be sure to log out of your record when you are finished.

Renewals

Materials will be renewed for an additional loan period if a hold has not been placed on that item. Renewals may be made in person or online through the “View Your Record” function.

Fine Policy

The overdue fine for regular circulating materials is 20 cents per day. There is a 3-day grace period in which materials may be returned and no fine will be charged.

Overdue Notices

Notices are sent as a courtesy when materials are overdue. Borrowers are responsible for returning or renewing materials on time whether or not a notice has been received. Patrons with an email address in their record will receive notices by email.

Lost or Damaged Materials

Patrons will be charged the cost of the item plus a $10 processing fee for materials that are lost or mutilated.
