New Year, New Director, New Website!

Yavapai County Free Library District said goodbye to Barbara Kile in January, when she retired as Director after serving the District in various roles for almost 30 years.  The Board of Supervisors appointed Corey Christians (then Yavapai Library Network Manager) to take on the job.  This new website, is the first public expression of his vision of ever greater resources and service to Yavapai County library patrons. 

I move?

Make sure you keep your contact info current. See your home library staff to update your address. 

I lose or damage an item I checked out (or my pet/little brother does)?

Damaged: Let library staff know that the item is damaged so it can be repaired or replaced.  If it must be replaced, you will have to pay for the item, plus a processing fee.


Lost:  As with damaged items, lost items must be replaced, so you will have to pay for the item, plus a processing fee. If it turns up later, contact the owning library regarding their refund policy.


My books are overdue?

District branch libraries do not charge fines for late items. Just bring them back as soon as possible. However, some libraries in the Network do charge fines, and those fines can be collected at any library you use. Some libraries will not let you check out new materials if you have unpaid fines. If you owe more than $10.00, your account will be frozen until you pay the fines.

Use a public library computer?

All the District branch libraries have public computers for patrons to use.  You can print, copy and fax, as well.  Check your email, do your taxes, write a paper for school, make a yard sale sign… Library staff can help get you started.

  • B&W Copies: $.10 per side
  • Color Prints: $.50 per side
  • Fax (Incoming/Outgoing)
    • First page $.50
    • Additional Pages $.10

Suggest an item?

If the Network catalog does not have what you are looking for, and it might be an item lots of other patrons would enjoy, write the title and author down and give it to library staff.

Place a hold?

Didn’t find what you need at your home library? Fear not! Our catalog brings you the combined resources of 42 libraries. With over 1.3 million items, we probably have what you want, and when you place a hold, your item will be sent to your home library when it becomes available. Simply log in to your account, search for your item, click Place Hold, and make sure your pick-up library is correct.

If the catalog doesn’t have what you’re looking for, check with your library staff to request an Inter-Library Loan from outside the county.

Create and check My Account?

Once you have your library card, you can create an account online that will allow you to search the catalog, place holds to be sent to your home library, renew items and more, all from your home computer or even your smart phone.  Go to your local library's webpage then click the Go to the Catalog link. Then click Log In at the top of the page. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your phone number until you log in an change it.  

Get a library card?

If you have a current library card from any of the 42 YLN libraries, you can use it at any Network Library that is open to the public.

Note: fines and policies vary from library to library in the Network.  You are responsible for any materials checked out on your library card.

Library cards are free to Yavapai County residents.  If you don’t already have one and want to get yours from a District branch library, here’s what you need to bring with you:
