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).
YOUTH CARDS (ages 13-17)
Non-Residents may obtain a card that allows them access to online resources and up to 3 items checked out a time upon verification of local work or reference.
YOUTH CARDS (ages 13-17)
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, Anchorage mail (if they don’t already have a verified card themselves) and to authorize the full checkout limit 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, mail (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.
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 Once a replacement card has been issued, the previous library card is no longer valid and should be destroyed if found.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.
BORROWING TIME LIMITS
Card Holders in good standing with full access privileges may check out unlimited items including:
DVDs--max 4 for 2 weeks
CDs/Audio Books--2 weeks
Pre-school PBS Tablets--1 week
Board Games--2 weeks
Outdoor Toys--4 hours
Seeds (vegetable, herb, and flower)*

Partner library limits might vary.
ARE THERE FINES OR FEES?
There are no overdue fines for Hundred Public Library materials.
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.
OVERDUE ITEMS ONLY
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.
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.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic you are now able to get your Hundred Public Library Card entirely online. New Card's will be processed ASAP and your number provided via phone or email. This will allow you to immediately access E-books and Audio Books.Your physical card will be mailed to your residence.
