Opening a new account @ SFL

thumbnail.aspxTo open an account in the NEXT system at Seneca, you need to be at least 9 years of age,  have a photo identification and proof of current residential address.

Children Between the ages of 9- 18 children need a parent or guardian present to give permission for them to get a card and be guarantor for the account. We can leave a note on the account stating the parents wishes regarding permission to use computers with internet access.

When you sign for your child to get a library card, you agree to be responsible for replacement fees for lost or damaged materials.

Your library card

Once you have your library card, please bring it with you each time you come to the library. Our patron base is online with more than 50 other libraries, we are sure to check out on your account if you have your card.

If you do not have your library card, a photo ID will need to be presented.

A lost library card can be replaced for a fee of $1.00 each time.

Protect your account

Protect your account by keeping your card safe and reporting a lost or stolen immediately.

Overdue Charges

We do not currently charge fines for overdue items.

The NEXT system will automatically disbar patrons if materials are 35 days or more overdue. This means no library services – including using computers, faxes, checkouts, renewals, copies, etc – until materials are returned or paid for.
