Common Fixes for Login Errors
Many account login errors can be readily fixed without visiting the library. Following is a list of common fixes to login errors:
Use Your Complete Card Number
If you tried to sign in with the short version of your card number and received a login error, try again with the complete number (no spaces).
Use the Correct PIN
Unless you have requested or set up a custom PIN, your PIN will match the last four digits of the phone number you gave when you signed up for a card. If you have forgotten your PIN, you may request a reset in person at the library. Library staff will ask to see photo identification before resetting your PIN.
If you know your PIN but would simply like change it, sign into your library account, then click the Personal Information tab, then expand the Change PIN section.
Clear Your Browser Cache
When you sign into your library account, your browser saves session cookies from our website. If you don’t periodically clear your browser cache, or if multiple library users share the same computer, expired versions of cookies can interfere with new login attempts.
To test for this problem, sign into your account using a private or incognito tab. If the login works, then you should clear the old cookies from your browser cache.
Clearing the cache varies by browser. The following links will help you find browser-specific instructions:
Please note: You can delete all of your saved cookies, but this will log you out of other websites. To only delete cookies from our website, find your list of saved cookies, search for cookies from idfalls.ent.sirsi.net, then delete any cookies that show up.

Open Each of Your Saved Lists in the Legacy Catalog
If you used the My Lists feature in our legacy catalog, obsolete items in those lists can cause login problems. To resolve this:
- Sign into the legacy catalog at catalog.ifpl.org
- Click the My List link in the top, right corner.†
- Next, open any secondary lists located under the Other Lists dropdown—You will only have secondary lists if you created them.
- Return to the primary account login and try to sign in again.
†Simply opening these lists causes them to update, instantly removing the obsolete list items creating the login error. To prevent future login errors caused by old lists, we recommend deleting these legacy lists completely and switching to the list feature in the main catalog.
