Change is coming!
Lincoln City Libraries will soon be installing a new Online Catalog. During the installation of the new catalog, April 27-29, there will be no access to the library's catalog or your customer record. You will be able to borrow material, but you will need to have your library card with you.

When the new catalog debuts, all existing PIN numbers will be reset to the last four digits of the primary phone number on your account. You may reset your PIN once the catalog is live. Please contact library staff for assistance with this.
