Library Card FAQ

Got a card but forgot username or password?

Username: Enter your entire 14-digit library card number without spaces. 

Password: Try the last four digits of your telephone number (the number we have on file at the library). 

If that doesn’t work, call 620-663-5441 x116 or e-mail info@hutchpl.org

Library Card FAQs 

What functions can I perform in my account?

You can:

  • Place holds
  • View checked out items
  • Renew checked out items
  • View any fines
  • Review contact information and request changes
  • Create a reading history to keep track of what you've read
  • Change your password

Do I have to use my own card?

Yes. You can maintain control over items checked out on your account and prevent your being charged for items you do not have.


What happens if I lose my card or it is stolen?

Report the card lost immediately. Library staff will deactivate your account to prevent unauthorized use. You can then reactivate your account with a photo ID on your next visit. Treat your library card as you would a credit card!


Can I pay my fines through My Account?

Not at this time. You can call the library and make payment over the telephone (620) 663-5441 ext. 116.


What if I have fines?  Can I still use my library card? 

Your Hutchinson Public Library card will still work with all our online products, regardless of fines or fees.
