Southern Pines residents support the library through their taxes. Nonresidents pay a fee for a library card that approximates what residents pay annually per capita through taxes.
There are four choices (fees adjusted annually):
All materials except for DVDs in the Special Collection may be kept for three weeks. The DVDs in the special collection have particular significance and check out is limited to one at a time per card holder, for a maximum of three days, with no opportunity to renew. Patrons may check out three regular DVDs along with one special collection DVD.
You may place a hold on items which are unavailable and be notified by email or text (there is a charge of $0.43 for the postage of the hold card, if you choose to be notified by mail.) Books may also be requested from other libraries through the Interlibrary Loan system. The charge per item is determined by the return postage cost.
You can place hold requests via the Internet as long as you have a valid library card and a personal identification number (PIN). To place a hold, search for the title(s) of interest in the library catalog. When the title is displayed, select the “Place Hold” button. The request form will be displayed. After entering your library card number and PIN, select the “Submit Hold” button. To ensure that you get the next available item, make sure to keep the "I want the first available copy" option selected.
Please monitor your library account online, via the “Patron Review” button. Pick up your item within seven days after the status changes to "Arrived."
Patrons will be allowed to only place a maximum of five items on hold at any time.
For detailed directions on placing online holds, please see the flyer.
With our new MobilePrint Service™, you can use your personal computer or mobile device to print to the library’s printers from anywhere. Simply submit documents for printing and come to the library to release and pick up your document using your library card. If you do not have a library card, please see a library staff member to pay for your print jobs (.15¢ black & white and .25¢ color).
