Renew Your Card

Library cards may be renewed in person with valid identification at the Greenburgh Public Library, or other libraries within the Westchester Library System.

Replace Your Card

In order to replace a lost card, the patron must come into the library with proof of identity, proof of residence and pay a lost card replacement fee of $3.00.

PIN Numbers

To provide a greater level of security and privacy, you will be required to log-in to the online library catalog using your library card number and a personalized identification number (PIN) before viewing information about your account or to place a hold. Your PIN will initially be the last 4 digits of the phone number on your library card account. To verify or update the phone number on your library card account, please call or visit your local public library. Westchester Library System (WLS) encourages you to change your PIN to something that will be easy to remember, but that only you will know.
