The Smartest Card

The Smartest Card you can get is an Upland Public Library card -- it's the key to getting things done, at no or little cost, on your own time, at your own convenience.

With an Upland Public Library card, patrons may check their library accounts from an online Catalog workstation or a personal computer, search for books or articles, ask questions, even check out (digital) books, without leaving home, school, or office. Most of these services are available after hours or on your own inside the Library.Use the link below to download an application.

Renewals

If you don't have time to wait in line at the Circulation Desk, you've got several options, and you'll need to have your library card handy for all three:

  • Renew your checkouts by the due date at one of the Catalog stations.
  • Renew online by the due date from your computer at home, office, or school.
  • Before or after the due date, call (909) 931-4220. Voicemail is available after hours, but please leave the name of the cardholder, the library card number, and a phone number where we may reach you during the day.

You can usually have up to two renewals per item, as long as no one else has requested it.

Self Checkout

If you'd rather not stand in line at the Circulation Desk, then you can scan your own library card and books at the Self-Checkout machine on the Upper Level. Library cards must be in good standing; you can update your account at the Circulation Desk.

Get Library Notices Via Email

Sign up at the Library's Checkout Desk to receive email notices of lists of soon-to-be-due or requested (on-hold) Library items that are ready for your pickup! Save yourself some time and potential overdue fines by signing up for email notification.

Please check the inbox and junkmail/spam folders of your email account for messages from notices.upland@librarycatalog.info. Better yet, add this address to your address book to keep our notices from ending up in your spam/junkmail folders. If you have signed up for email notification but you are still not receiving messages, please let us know and call (909) 931-4200. Regardless of whether email notification works, you can always check due dates and availability of "hold" requests via MyCitrus inside or outside the Library. You can also call (909) 931-4210 to review or renew items. Another way to track library materials is via LibraryElf.com, an independently run service, not affiliated or associated with the City of Upland or the Upland Public Library. LibraryElf is a web-based email tool for library users to keep track of their library checkouts for one or more library accounts.
