PIN Day is here!

A Personal Identification Number (PIN) has been added to your library account.

Right now, your PIN is your 8-digit birthdate. For example, if you were born on December 10, 1851 like Melville Dewey, your PIN would be 12101851.

We are currently in a transition period. PINs will be required for self-check out starting April 29, and will be added to online My Account and login processes as we move forward.

You are welcome to leave your PIN the way we set it, but once it is available online, we encourage you to log in to your library account and update it. Your PIN can be any number you choose, with a minimum length of 7 digits and a maximum length of 13.

In the future, if you forget your PIN you can always reset it online, or call 734-397-0999 and we can reset it back to your birthdate for you.

If you’re wondering why PINs, or want some PIN suggestions, check out this post.

Sunday on May 9 is when we hit the pause button on our busy lives and take a moment to appreciate our mothers and motherhood. Mothers have a profound value in our lives and in many ways have the most challenging, greatest and toughest job in the world. They give us an abundance of unconditional love, support and acceptance. Mothers are our tireless cheerleader for every milestone we experience. Check out these new books celebrating the joys and challenges of motherhood.
