Personal Identification Number (PIN)

About Your PIN

Your PIN (personal identification number) is automatically entered as read when you receive your library card. PINs become active the day you receive your library card. You may change your PIN at any time via Aspen, or through a staff member at the Cards and Accounts Desk. Below are instructions for changing your PIN for the first time/resetting it and instructions for forgotten PINs.

We strongly encourage you to change your PIN to a four-digit number as soon as possible.

  1. Go to My Account on Aspen.
  2. Log in with your library card number (no letters or spaces) and the PIN read (Note that if you received a card prior to 9/9/19, your default PIN may be wyld). NOTE: If you need instructions on accessing your account or logging in visit:
