Become a Patron

Are you a resident of Jones Township?

Residents, businesses, and property owners in Jones Township may apply for a WPL card (with full patron privileges) at no charge.  Your WPL card (as a Jones Township resident) also comes with AccessPA membership, please register in person* at the library.

*Adults must present a photo ID and proof of current address to receive a library card. All children 3 to 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is required to sign the parental authorization.

Are you a resident of Pennsylvania with an Access PA card from your Home Library?

​The Wilcox Public Library participates in the AccessPA Statewide Borrowing Program. Your PA home library AccessPA card gives you borrowing privileges at our library.

Still don't qualify?

Non-residents may pay a minimal fee for a WPL card with full patron privileges.  There are two options:

  • Visitor Card:  $15.00 for 3 months; $5.00 for an additional consecutive month.
  • Non-Resident Annual Card:  $40.00 for 12 months.

All WPL patron cards must be renewed every three years by presenting a current photo ID and verifying the current information on the account.

Lost or stolen cards and changes of address should be reported to the library as soon as possible. Replacements for lost cards are $5.00.

Print out and complete the required questions (they are marked with a red *) on the Library Card Application; then bring the completed form and your required ID and proof of address to the library!

What You Can Do with Your Card

Congratulations! You Got Carded @ WPL

Your account with WPL may be used to borrow from the library, borrow digital content (such as eBooks & eAudiobooks), borrow digital magazines, use library computers, access databases, and more! You are the only one who may use your WPL account.

Accounts cannot be transferred or shared. You are responsible for all items borrowed using your account.

To report a lost or stolen card, please contact the library at 814-929-5639.  Library accounts are valid for three years and can be renewed by visiting the library and updating your account.

I see what I want, but it’s checked out.

You can place a hold on most materials and then pick them up when you receive notice that they are ready for you. With very popular materials, there may be several people waiting. If the item you are looking for is not in our collection it is possible that we can request it from another library for you. We are part of a service called AccessPA that connects us to hundreds of other libraries in Pennsylvania.  See a staff person for more information.

How Long Can I Have It?

Due dates will be listed on the print receipt you receive when checking out. Additionally, you can see all of your account details in the My Account area on our webOPAC. Use your library card number (no spaces between numbers) and your PASSWORD (which is your last name) to log in.

Can I have it longer?

For most materials, you may renew twice. Some items, like hot-pick movies or items with holds, cannot be renewed.  You can renew items through your account in the My Account area on our webOPAC, or by calling the library.

Can I get reminders when something is due?

Yes! Notices will be sent for overdue WPL items and holds. You may receive these notices via email, phone, or postal mail. If you provide an email, you will also receive courtesy notices reminding you of when items are almost due.

I forgot to return it when it was due. Or, I lost it.

The Wilcox Public Library does charge minimal overdue fines on materials. Once something is 10 or more days overdue your account will be blocked from checking out anything else until that material is returned. If something is 30 days or more overdue your account will be billed the replacement cost of the item. When we bill your account, you’ll receive a letter explaining the bill.

If you return the item, the bill will be waived. If you are unable to return the item, or it is damaged, please let us know. Your account will be billed for the replacement cost of the item. If the amount is $10.00 or more, your account balance will have to be under $10.00 before you can check out again.

For more information, call 814-929-5639.
