Manage My Account

There are three ways for you to keep track of materials you borrow.

You will receive a receipt at check out that lists each title and its due date. Please use this receipt to remind yourself when the materials are due.

You may review due dates and renew materials by calling TelAccount, 410.313.7810. You will be prompted to enter your library card number, found under the barcode on your card, and PIN (personal identification number) to access your library account information.

You may access this information by clicking on the Account Login link from any page of our web site. If you have forgotten your PIN, please try the Forgot your PIN or password link on the Login page.  A successful login will enable you to view the items you currently have checked out with due dates, overdue items, reserved items waiting to be picked up, outstanding reserve requests, and outstanding fines. From this page, you may also renew items provided that they are not overdue and no other customers are waiting for the item. This information can be accessed daily. You will be asked to enter your library card number and PIN whenever you login to your account.

Changing Your Personal Information

You can change your personal information, by logging in and clicking the "Change Account Information" button. 

If you wish to log into your account with a username instead of your library card barcode number, log into your account using your barcode/pin or password - then click on Change Logon - then click on Change Username - type the username you wish to use - type the username again and click on Submit. 

Lost library cards

Please report lost or stolen cards immediately to your branch. The lost card will be deactivated and a new card issued to you.
