Accessing Your Library Record

 How can I find out what I have checked out on my card?

You can check for overdue items, renew items, place holds, and check the status of holds through several ways:

·         Online through Pathfinder.

·         Use the public access computer at the library.

·         Phone your local library for answers to specific questions or for assistance.

With the above access methods you will need your library card number (barcode) and pin number (password) in order to access your record.

I don’t own a computer. Is there some way I can find out about my library record?

Yes! You can always call us at 785-472-3969 we would be glad to help you.

I want to protect my card from anyone else using it– can I do that?

All library cards have an associated PIN to help ensure the confidentiality of your library record. Your PIN must be entered after your barcode when placing a hold or to look at your library record. If you do not know your PIN, contact the library at (785)472-3969.

Overdue Fines & Other Charges

How much are overdue fines for materials checked out at J.H. Robbins? 

We know longer take fines but we welcome donations.

How much do you charge for Lost or Damaged items?

If an item is 28 days late, a replacement charge for a Lost item is assessed to your account.  This amount varies according to the cost of the item.  The same amount will be charged to account if an item is returned damaged.

Can I buy a replacement copy for an item I’ve damaged?

Before buying a replacement copy, speak to the Library Director as there are conditions and restrictions which may apply.  We do not guarantee we will accept a replacement copy in lieu of payment.

I found a Lost item I’ve already paid for.  What should I do?

If you return a Lost & Paid For item within 6 months of paying for it, we will issue you a refund check.  No refunds will be issued after 6 months or if the item is damaged.
