How do I renew my card?

 

Library cards need to be renewed once a year to keep your contact information current, but it has to be done by a staff member.  If you get an error message in PamCat that says something like "Privilege expired," call any branch library or e-mail ask@pamunkeylibrary.org and ask to have your card renewed.
