Binge Boxes are limited to 3 each of Adult Binge Boxes and Youth Binge Boxes per customer. Our downloadable audiobooks and eBooks from OverDrive are limited to a total of 10 items (in any format) at one time. hoopla checkouts are limited to 4 per month.

Yes, books borrowed from Lincoln City Libraries may be returned to any of our locations.

Most books, CDs, and other items may be renewed up to two times, provided there are no requests for them. (Books labelled “Books to Go” cannot be renewed.) You can use any of the following ways to renew your materials:

  • Use our online catalog. You may renew all of your materials at once or just selected ones.
    1. From a Library Catalog screen or from the Library’s Web site, click on the “My Account” link.
    2. Enter the number on the barcode of your library card, your Library OneCard number, or your eCard number.
    3. Enter your 4-digit PIN and click “Log In.” (Safari users may need to enter their PIN manually instead of using AutoFill.)
    4. Go to the “Checkouts” tab.
    5. Check the box for each item listed in your account that you want to renew.
    6. Click the “Renew” button.
  • Call our automated renewal system at 402-441-8506. Have your library card ready and listen carefully to the instructions.
  • Call or bring your materials in to any of our library locations.

Lincoln City Libraries no longer charges overdue fees. Charges are still assessed for the replacement or repair of lost and damaged items. Items not returned 21 days after the due date are considered lost.

When accumulated fees are more than $10, no further borrowing will be allowed. Accounts for cardholders with accumulated fees who do not respond to the Library’s notices to clear their account may be referred to a collection agency and a nonrefundable $10 fee will be assessed.

Credit cards can be used to pay fees online by logging into your account in our online catalog. A minimum payment of $1.00 is required for credit card payments.

The fee for lost items is the replacement cost of the item. If you find a lost item after this fee is assessed, the replacement cost can be removed if the item is returned within the six month period after the payment.

You can sign up for courtesy e-mail notifications here. Pre-notifications are sent out three days in advance of an item’s due date, and overdue notification is not sent until the item is two days overdue.

To request notifications by text message instead, sign into My Account or contact a Library staff member; a Sign-up Guide is available
