Richland Library's new website, www.RichlandLibrary.com, has launched! Search for a title or sign in to your library account from any phone, computer or tablet. We recommend using Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari web browsers.

Below are some basic tips for getting started with the new site. Also, library staff are here to answer your questions or assist you with your account.

Account

To access your library account click Log In/Sign Up. Enter your Richland Library card numbers (without spaces) and your PIN. 

Once you've signed in click My Account to see what materials you have checked out, to renew, pay fines, place or manage holds, view your saved lists, and see your current room reservations or event registrations. You can also find recommendations and rate your past events in your account Dashboard.

Catalog

Search the library's catalog in the Search the Collections box on our website. Enter a search term such as a title, author, subject or combination of the above. Click the magnifying glass or hit enter to run your search of our collection. You can then filter your results by author, title, format, date, or subject.

Or, click the magnifying glass without entering any terms to open the Advanced Search page right away. 

Click a title to view more details or to check its availability in the library. You can also click Hold or Find to see more details or to place a title on hold.

The search will conduct a keyword search of the library's books, DVDs, audiobooks, music, ebooks and other downloadable or streaming collections. 

Site

To find information about library services, blog posts, hours or more use the search box and select Site using the drop-down arrow.

To see lists of recommended reads, new arrivals, bestsellers, and most popular titles scroll to the Books, Movies & Music page.

Stream & Download

Links to the library's collections of ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, e-magazines, streaming music and movies can be found on the home page under Stream & Download. You can visit those sites to access your checked out digital titles or view your e-holds.

Research & Learn

To find content in our research databases and online learning tools, click Research & Learn. From there you can select a research tool or search for one by name using the Search box. Use the Article search tab to search articles from across the research tools. After conducting an article search you can filter your results on the results page.
