To add another layer of security to your library record, you are issued an initial PIN (Personal Identification Number) to use library services when you receive a new library card. The GDL staff member who gives you your card will inform you about your PIN.

To Set Your Pin from the GDL Website: Click on the Catalog link on the home page, and then click on the My Account Link. If you do not have a PIN, enter your barcode (the letter D followed by all of the numbers, but don't type in the space. Example: D123456789) and click SUBMIT. The system will then prompt you to enter a PIN. This PIN will then be set for your account. If you experience any errors during this process, you probably have a PIN on your account already. Please contact a GDL staff member.

While you may use any combination of 10 characters or less, we suggest using a 4 or 5 digit number. Please do not share this PIN with others!

Please be sure you can remember your PIN because you will need it to:

  • Access your account online
  • Login to our public computers
  • Use our wireless network
  • Make reservations for our public computers
  • Access digital content from our Digital Library

If you need your PIN reset: please contact a GDL staff member and be sure to have some form of photo ID available. If you call a library to have your PIN reset, be prepared to verify certain details about your library account.
