How can I access my children's accounts to renew materials?
Thanks for asking! To renew items for your children through the online catalog, you'll need the library barcode and 4-digit PIN for each individual account. Unless you've got each family member's card on the same keyring or everyone's account information in a password manager or notebook at your desk, it can be - well, I was going to say 'inconvenient' but 'onerous' might be the better word.
Honestly, you may find it simpler to call your neighborhood library or our main branch at 402-444-4800 - with a few questions to cover confidentiality requirements we can search each child's account and may be able to move you through the process more easily. You can streamline that interaction even further by linking your children's accounts to your own next time you visit the library - unfortunately the online catalog isn't smart enough to account for that, but it will simplify your interaction with library humans and may be handy when next your accounts come up for reactivation.
Please feel free to email back if you have further questions, and seriously, we'd love to help you get that renewal taken care of by phone - 402-444-4800 if you don't have the number to a local branch handy.
