FAQs

How do I get a library card?

Adults:
Woodbury Public Library cards include LOGIN membership and are free to those who live in or own property in Woodbury. Applicants must complete a Patron Application, available online or at the library. Valid identification, providing proof of who you are (e.g., driver’s license or photo ID), and where you live (e.g., utility bill, rent receipt, etc.) is required. Those who are employed in Woodbury are eligible for a card that may be used only at the Woodbury Public Library.

Children:
Children age 6 and up are eligible for Woodbury Public Library cards. Children under 18 years of age need a parent or legal guardian to show proper ID and co-sign the application. Woodbury Junior/Senior High School students may use class schedules or school ID cards to demonstrate residency. Applicants must complete a Patron Application, available online or at the library.

What are my responsibilities for borrowed library materials?

Your Woodbury Public Library LOGIN card agreement requires borrowed library materials to be returned on time and in good condition.  For further information about our borrowing policies, please see our online Circulation Policy and Video Policy.

Where do I return borrowed library materials?

During library operating hours, please return materials to the Circulation Desk. When the library is closed, you may return materials in the drop box in front of the library, or in the return slot on the Russell Street side, next to the delivery entrance.

How do I find materials while at the library?

Computers providing access to the LOGIN online catalog are located across from the Circulation Desk on the library’s first floor, and near the top of the stairs on our second floor. Using this catalog, you can search our holdings as well as the holdings of the 19 other LOGIN  libraries. Also, please feel free to ask the library staff for assistance in locating the materials you need.

What are the library’s policies regarding the selection and circulation of material, and the use of library facilities?

The Woodbury Public Library Circulation Policy, Video Policy, Electronic Resource Policy, Collection Development Policy and Rules Governing the Use of the Library are all available online at our Library Policies page. For printed copies, please ask any staff member on your next visit.

How can I search the library’s collection with my home computer?

The Woodbury Public Library’s collection is now on the World Wide Web, via the LOGIN catalog. You can search our holdings and the holdings of the 14 other LOGIN system libraries. You may also place a hold on books that are currently checked out, view your own record to check for due dates or fines, or even renew your own material online. Click here to connect to the LOGIN catalog online.

Can I access the library’s online reference databases from my home computer?

Woodbury Public Library cardholders may access many of the online reference resources available at the Woodbury Public Library from any home computer. Please see our Reference/ Online Resource page for links to the databases available for remote access. You’ll need the barcode number from your Woodbury-issued library card, so have your card handy.

How do I request materials not on the shelf or not owned by Woodbury Public Library?

If a book or other material is not on the shelf, a staff member can tell you if it is on loan or missing. If a copy is unavailable at our library, a system-wide hold can be placed on the material.  Your request may be filled by our copy when it becomes available or by another LOGIN library’s copy of that title sent for you to pick up here. If you prefer, we can arrange to have another LOGIN library hold the item for you to pick up there. A staff member will be happy to place holds for you, or you can use the LOGIN Catalog to place your own holds. If material is unavailable within the LOGIN Consortium, you may ask a staff member to arrange an Interlibrary Loan, or you can place your own Interlibrary Loan requests from your home computer, using JerseyCat. When requests are ready for you to pick up, you will be notified by a phone call.

What are the children’s programs offered by the Woodbury Public Library?

Our Children’s Program Coordinator Audra Bonfiglio conducts a variety of children’s programming throughout the year. For information about our children’s programs, see our children’s page, or check out our online Library Calendar.

We also offer free wireless Internet access for the use of individuals who bring a laptop or mobile devices with them to the library.
