Library Cards & Borrowing

A library card is your free ticket to exploring the world!

With a library account you can check out books as well as download e-books, magazines and audio books. 

You can use your                           to renew your checked out materials, create and/or change your account PIN. You can also browse thousands of books available across West Virginia and place a hold on titles which will allow you to pick them up locally at Hundred public library.

HOW DO I GET MY LIBRARY CARD?

ADULT RESIDENT CARDS (age 18+)

If you are a resident of Hundred, WV, or the surrounding area, fill out this                             

and then bring your photo ID to Hundred Public Library during regular business hours to verify your account and get your card. You will also need to bring a postmarked piece of mail that confirms your address. Mail must be addressed to you, in the envelope and postmarked within the past 45 days (i.e. this month’s utility bill). Residents will be allowed an unlimited amount of checkouts.

 

NON-RESIDENT CARDS (adult only)

 

Non-Residents may obtain a card that allows access to online resources and up to 3 items checked out a time upon verification of local work or reference.  

YOUTH CARDS (ages 12-17)

 

Youth can get a limited library card without a parent present, which gives them access to online resources and up to 3 items checked out at a time.

 

For a card with full privileges, the parent/guardian needs to come to the library to present their ID, postmarked mail with current address (if they don’t already have a verified card themselves) and authorize the full access for the child. The child does not need to accompany the parent to return the registration card.

CHILDREN CARDS (ages birth-12)

Children's cards require the same information as adult cards. A parent/guardian needs to come to the library to present their ID, postmarked mail with current address (if they don’t already have a verified card themselves) and to authorize a card for the child. The child does not need to accompany the parent to return the registration card.

LIBRARY CARDS ARE FREE!!

HOW DO I REPLACE MY LIBRARY CARD?

If your library card is lost or stolen, please let library staff know as soon as possible to prevent unauthorized use.  Bring your photo ID to HPL and staff will cancel the card and issue a replacement. The card will be replaced free of charge.  Once a replacement card has been issued, the previous library card is no longer valid and should be destroyed if found.

WHAT IS A PIN AND HOW DO I GET ONE?

Your PIN is your password to access your library account online. Once you login with your libray card and PIN at MY ACCOUNT, you may renew items, change your PIN, place holds, and view a record of your check-outs.

ARE THERE FINES OR FEES?

There are no overdue fines for items owned by Hundred Public Library. We do request that they be returned in a timely manner and have a set due date of two weeks for most items. 

DUE DATES
Every item checked out still has a due date. Cardholders are responsible for honoring the due date by returning or renewing the item. Remember someone else may be waiting for that item. Please bring it back on time. You may renew your items online up to 3 times if no one else has placed a hold on them.

 

HPL ITEMS ONLY


The No-Fines policy applies only to items belonging to the Hundred Public Library. Late fines may still be charged for items from partner libraries and Interlibrary loan items. Fines and fees vary by library.

 

FEES


Fines are different than fees. The No-Fines policy applies only to overdue items. Fees for damaged or lost items will still be charged to cardholder accounts. 

BLOCKED ACCOUNTS


Once your card reaches a total of $25 in late fines (from other libraries) or fees (replacement/damage) your library account will be blocked. When that happens, you will not be able to check out more items or access certain streaming or digital content until the overdue item is returned and/or your late fines from other libraries are paid.
