Forgot Your PIN?

Pre-Register for a DCL library card. (Pre-registering will allow you to place holds, but those holds won’t be filled until you come into a library with a valid ID to convert your temporary card number to a full-privileged card.)

Manage All Your Family’s Accounts in One Place

If you’d like to see all of your family’s due dates, holds and more all in one place, try Library Elf. DCL subscribes to this service, so there is no charge to you. You can also sign up for text or email messages to alert you to hold availability, pre-overdue and overdue items.

To get started, go to Library Elf, click “List of Libraries,” find Durham County Library and click “Signup.”
