To access the library catalog, go to the main library page and click on the blue button on the right side that says “Catalog.”

To log in to the catalog:

Click on the blue “Catalog” button (pictured below).

It will take you to the catalog, click “Log In” (top right corner, pictured below).

Enter your Library Card Number (no spaces) and PIN in pop up (pictured below).

Library Card Number: Found under the barcode on the back side of your library card. When you enter the number, do not put spaces.

Library PIN: Your PIN will be either the last four digits of the phone number on your account (cell or landline), or 1234. If neither works, library staff can reset your PIN.

Search the Catalog:

To search the catalog, type the item you are looking for in the search box. In this example, we used Michelle Obama’s “Becoming.”

Click on the orange “Place Hold” to place an item on hold. A message will pop up asking for the location you want to pick up the item. Select Romulus Public Library if you want to pick up at our location.

If the hold is refused, the item may still be “New” or it is “Unavailable,” your card could be expired, or you may owe fines.

See Fines:

To find out if you owe fines, click on “Account” in the top right corner (pictured below).

Then click on “Account Activity” (pictured below).

On the left side, there are 3 stats given (Loans, Holds, Fines). Fines will indicate the amount owed (pictured below).

The library does not block access to place holds until a patron reaches $15 or more in fines. If it is below $15 and you cannot place a hold, then the item is most likely not an item the owning library allows to be loaned out.

Checking If Your Card is Expired:

To find out if your card is expired, click on “Account” in the top right corner (pictured below).

Login and click on “Account Summary” (pictured below).

It will bring up a summary of your Account, scroll down to see “Library Card or ID” and look at “Expiration Date” (pictured below). If it is expired, please you must visit the library in person for renewal. Please bring a valid Driver’s License or State ID with your current address to renew your library card. Please note that all fines must be paid before accounts can be renewed.

In this section you can also verify the library has the right contact information for you.

See if Holds Arrived:

*** An item may say it arrived, but that does not mean it’s ready to pick up. A notification is only sent when staff have processed it. Before you come to the library, make sure you received a notification. This will be sent via email or text message.

To find out if your materials have arrived, log in and click on “Account” in the top right corner (pictured below).

Click on “Account Activity” (pictured below).

It will list the amount of holds you placed and those that have arrived (pictured below).

In this example, it says “Holds: 0 Arrived: 0.”

“Holds” are materials you have requested and are still waiting in line to get. “Arrived” are holds that are now available to be picked up at Romulus Public Library. The example means you have 0 items on hold and 0 available to be picked up. Wait to receive a notification before coming to the library.

For any item with the status of “In Transit,” this means it is not in the building yet and is transitioning to our building via truck (pictured below).

Make an EZ Username and Password

Typing a long barcode can be exhausting. You can create an “EZ” Username and Password instead.

To make one, click on “Account” in the top right corner (pictured below).

Click on “Account Summary” (pictured below).

Click on “EZ Login” (pictured below).

Enter a Username and Password and click “Save” (pictured below).

You now can log in with your new “EZ” username and password!
