Circulation 2018-03-16T13:46:54+00:00

The circulation desk is the first thing you’ll see when walking into the library. Here, you can sign up for a library card, check out items, pick up current calendars and class schedules, place and pick up holds, as well as get directions throughout the building and general information as to what our library has to offer.

Library Cards

To start using the library today, sign up for a 3 week temporary ID, which can be used immediately to place holds, use the library’s online databases, and download eBooks and eAudiobooks.

To get a library card giving you full access to all materials, bring to the library at 509 Cherry Street, Jamestown, your photo ID and proof of current address. For out-of-state residents, cards cost $10 a year. Patrons must use their own cards to borrow or reserve materials.
