Open Saved Lists
If you used the My Lists feature in our legacy catalog, obsolete titles may interfere with account login. To resolve this:
- Sign into the legacy catalog.
- Click the My List link in the top, right corner.
- Open any other lists located under the Other Lists dropdown on the upper right side of the window.
- Log out of the legacy catalog and try signing into your account again.
Please note: Simply opening these lists causes them to update, instantly removing any obsolete content. To prevent future login errors, we recommend you remove all titles from these legacy lists and use the My List feature in the new catalog instead.
Renew Expired Card
All Idaho Falls Public Library cards expire from time to time. To renew your card, verify your address and contact information using one of the following methods:
- Complete an online support request.
- Visit a library service desk.
- Call the library:
Please note: If you have an out-of-county card, you will be required to visit the library to pay the annual fee before your card can be renewed. If you have a property owner’s card or military card, you will be asked to provide documentation in person before your card can be renewed. Other situations may require that you visit the library in person to renew your card.
