To pay online, log into your account with your library card number and pin number and then select "Renew Materials and Review My Account." Select any single "Pay Bill Now" item or "Pay All Bills" and then select "Amount Owed." You will then be taken to a PayPal payment screen where you can select the payment method.

  • How Do I Put an Item on Hold?

    You can call the library to place a hold or use the online libary catalog to place a hold yourself.

    To contact the library, call the library at (248) 684-0845 and choose either the Adult Services desk or the Youth and Teen Services desk from the automated menu and we will be happy to place the hold for you.

    Or you may place a hold yourself by following the steps below:

    • Find the item for which you want to place a hold.
    • Click on the Details of that item.
    • Click on Place Hold.
    • Type in your library card number (no spaces or dashes)
    • Type in your Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you haven't changed your PIN it is either changeme if you received your card prior to March 2007 or 1234 if you received it after that date. Check with library staff if you're not sure what your pin is.
    • Choose the library at which you'd like to pickup the item.
    • Click on Place Hold.

    Depending on your preference, you will receive a phone call, an email, or a text message when the item is waiting for you.  Items can only be held for 4 days before they are returned to the owning library and/or made available for other library patrons. If you are concerned that your hold will be filled when you are on vacation, you can suspend it via My Account in the catalog.
