What is a PIN?
PIN stands for “personal identification number.” It’s basically a short password that you use along with your library card number to log into different library services. Your PIN is your key to borrowing items, using digital platforms like hoopla and Wisconsin’s Digital Library (or its app, Libby), accessing your library account online and more.
How do I get a PIN?
If you have a library card, you have a PIN! If you don’t have a library card, you’ll choose your PIN when you first sign up for your card. PINs must be four digits, and you should try to pick one that’s easy for you to remember but not easy for other people to guess. If you think you might forget it, make sure to save your PIN number somewhere private.
