How do I get a book?

You can reserve books or movies and pick them up from a cart in our entryway, or behind the checkout desk if you prefer.

Reserve items on the catalog, email us your requests, or call us.

At this time, we are limiting reserves to 3 per card.

Please note that your default password for the catalog is your seven-digit phone number, including the hyphen (dash).


Can I return my materials?

You can return your materials at any time through our metal book drop, in the entryway, or at the checkout desk per your comfort level. We empty it throughout the days when we are open and check items in.


Need a Library Card?

If you used to have a library card, you still do! Cards with us never disappear they just need updating now and then. Contact us to update your account!

If you’ve never had a card with us before: Email us at whipplefreelibrary@gmail.com with your name, address and phone number. We will set you up with a temporary account for a year. Cards for children are available for age 6 and older. Please include age when applying for your child. We ask that you come in for your card and we will update your account to the standard five year renewal.
