Frequently Asked Questions About Using the Library

Library Card Basics

Programs and Services

Computers and Computer Policy

Why would I want a Library Card?

Your Tremonton City Library Card allows you to check out and borrow books, magazines, audiobooks, and videos from the library. You can also request books not owned by our library through the inter-library loan lending system. Your library card number also gives you access to free e-books  and eaudiobooks through public Pioneer.

Who can get a Library Card?

Tremonton City Residents and property owners may receive a free card since Tremonton City property taxes support the operation of the library. Others may borrow materials with the payment of an annual fee for their card. The current fee for a non-resident Tremonton Library card is $20.00 for a family card. A patron must be 7 years of age or older to obtain a library card at the Tremonton City Library.

How do I get a library Card?

Come into the library with proof of current address (bill, checkbook, lease agreement, piece of mail) when applying for a library card. Library staff will create a library account for you, take your picture for your card, and give you a library card, which will need to be brought with you and presented when you check out library materials. Your library card will also allow you access to your library account online through our online Follett card catalogue.

What If I lose my library Card?

You will need to come into the library and fill out a lost card replacement form. The fee to replace a lost card is $3.00.

How do I access my library account?

You can access your “Follet Destiny” account from any computer. You can see when your items are due, put items on hold, renew items as long as they are not overdue, view fines and other account information and more.

How long can I keep library materials?

Books and magazines circulate for a period of 3 weeks. Videos, audiobooks, and popular new best seller books circulate for one week. Most library materials can be renewed as long as no one is waiting for them.

What if I can’t find what I want in the library?

Items not available in our collection can usually be obtained from other libraries through the Inter-library Loan Program. This service is available for books only through our library and an inter-library loan request form can be obtained from the library.

What are my rights and responsibilities?

You have the right to use all the materials and services of the library. You are responsible for bringing your card when visiting the library. Do not loan your library card or materials to anyone. Please notify the library if your name, address, e-mail or telephone number changes. You are expected to return library materials promptly and in good condition. Fines of ten cents per day shall be charged for all hardback books and five cents per day on paperback books for overdue materials.  Videos and audio tapes/CDs will carry a ten cent a day fine and storytelling kits shall carry a fine of a dollar a day. Fines shall not be assessed on Sundays and holidays. Fines shall stop at $5 per item. Patrons shall be assessed a replacement fee for individual items lost or damaged based on the current retail price of the material. If lost items are paid for and then found before one month’s time, the library will refund the cost of the book, but not the charge for the fine. After a one month period, no refunds will be granted. Delinquent patrons shall not be allowed to check out additional materials until all charges are paid in full and all items are returned. Patrons are delinquent if any of the following conditions apply: they have any fines on materials returned late, they have been billed for overdue materials, and an adult patron has fines or overdue materials on his /her child’s cards. The preceding thresholds shall be established periodically by the library director and shall be the same for all library patrons. Restricted patrons are still welcome to use the library facility and all of it resources.
