Obtaining a Library Account is easy at The Wilton Public Library.
An individual library account number will be issued to each patron using the library, regardless of age. A parent or guardian needs to sign the registration application for children under the age of 14. The automated systems allows patrons to check out materials by identifying themselves. Staff may request proof of identity for patrons who do not have their photo attached to their computer record. Proof of identity and address (driver’s license, ID, piece of mail) will be required to register for a card.
Temporary residents and visitors may request a guest account, which would be good for the duration of their stay, and with a limit of two items out at any time. The guest account registration must include a local address and telephone number, preferably with the name of a permanent resident as a reference.
New patrons will be limited to two items at any time during the first thirty days. Following this time, patrons abusing library privileges may be kept on another thirty-day probationary period at the discretion of the Director or Assistant Director.
There is no charge for registering for a library account.
The Wilton Public Library is a member of the Open Access program under the Iowa Library Services. This reciprocal borrowing program allows patrons of participating libraries to directly borrow materials and use reference services of other participating libraries. Materials may be dropped off at the home library for return to the lending library. Staff may limit Interlibrary Loan requests from Open Access Patrons.
