Frequently Asked Questions

What is my password?

  • Log in with your barcode and original password.
  • Choose Your Account, then Account Settings.
  • Choose Reset PIN/Password in the list.
  • Enter your original password, then your new password and confirm the change by entering your new password again.

What if I forget my password?

If you have a valid email address associated with your library account, click the Forgot Password link, enter your library barcode, and an email will be sent to you with further instructions on resetting your password. If you do not have an email associated with your library account, please contact either building – Argenta (217-795-2144) or Oreana (217-468-2340).

Do I have to go to your website if I want to search the catalog?

No, you can bookmark our online catalog in order to go there directly.

Do I have to log in to the online catalog with my barcode?

You do not need to be logged into our catalog to search for materials. However, to view your account, or to place a hold, you must log in with your barcode.

How do I see items only at AO Libraries?

At the top of the search results, there will be a button that says, “Argenta-Oreana Public Library District”. Click this button and the results will be limited to our library district.

How can I change my contact information?

  • Log in to your account. Go to Account Settings.
  • Click Contact Information.
  • Enter your correct phone number or email address. If you’d like texts sent to your phone when you have overdue items or a hold arrives, select the carrier and the correct phone number to send the text too.
  • If you need to change your name or address, you’ll need to come to either library. We need to verify that you still live within our district.
