Logged-On Library: Accessing Your BCCLS Account
While the Rochelle Park Library is closed for our remodel, we will be sharing some tips and tricks to accessing the digital services available to you thanks to your BCCLS library card.
One of the first steps for getting the most out of your BCCLS Library card is logging into your BCCLS account. To get started, you’ll want to go to the BCCLS website. You may recognize this as the website you use to access the BCCLS catalog.
In the top left hand corner, you’ll see the “Library Card # or Username” and “Password/PIN” boxes. In the first box you can enter your Library Card Number, and in the second box you can enter your pin, which should be the last 4 digits of your Library Card Number.
Note: If you’ve logged in before, you may have changed your Username and Password. Though your new Password will need to be entered, you can still enter your Library Card Number if you’ve forgotten your Username.
From this login page, you can change your account settings, check on your current items checked out and your requests, pay fines, and a variety of other services.
For example, in order to check on the books you currently have checked out, click on the “Items Out” tab in the left hand menu.
Here, you can see the due dates for your Items Out, how many times you can renew them, and to which library they belong. You can renew all of your items at once, or you can select individual items using the white boxes along the left side.
While we are closed, none of the Rochelle Park Library items you have checked out will be due. Enjoy your extra time with these items! They will not be due until the library reopens.
To place a request, you’ll first want to return to the BCCLS homepage and enter the title and/or author of the book into the search box.
Once you’ve found the item you want to order, you can select the “Place a Request” button to the right of the item. If you need to open the item to confirm it is the correct one, the “Place a Request” button should still be in the same place.
Because the Rochelle Park Library will be closed, you can set your request pickup for any other nearby 77 BCCLS libraries.
Once you’ve placed your requests, you can check your account any time to see updates, and the library holding the item will contact you when it arrives.
