Access Your Account
When you become a member of the De Soto Public Library, you will be given access to an online account. This account is your personal record of items you have checked out and requested, and it is also where you can keep track of any library fines and fees you may have accrued. We also have features that allow you to keep a record or your reading history and save lists of library items you are interested in.
How To Access Your Account
Your account number is your library card number (the barcode on the back of your card). Your PIN is a four-digit number assigned to you at the time we issued your card. To log into your account:

- Click “Login” in the upper right corner of your desktop browser
- Enter your library card barcode number and 4-digit PIN
- You will see your name in the upper right corner of the screen and at the bottom of the screen under Search Tools. Click your name.
