What does “Privilege Has Expired” mean?
Yes your library cards do expire and we had an enormous amount of cards expire on March 1, 2012. Our current catalog system is set up to renew cards each year. Often you are not even aware that your card has been renewed because at the checkout desk, the clerks seem to do it so easily without our being aware that it happened. Now so many of us are using our cards more and more online and less in the library. Our current system does not recognize online use only in house use, and more and more of us are experiencing that “Privilege Has Expired” when we try to place a hold or download a book. When you receive that message, please stop by the library with your driver’s license and renew your card.
