Home > Library Information > Using the Library
Any resident of South Windsor is eligible for a free borrower's card at our library. Please bring identification showing your South Windsor address when you apply for a card. Your library card must be presented when borrowing materials. Your South Windsor library card may also be used in most public libraries through the statewide Connecticard system. Materials borrowed from one public library may be returned to any other public library; they will be delivered to the owning library by the Connecticar delivery system.
If the items you need are in circulation, you may place a "hold" on the materials and we will notify you when the items are returned. Please have your library card number ready! You may also place "holds" directly on the computer, either from home or in the library. If the item you want but it is currently "unavailable", please click on the button marked "Place hold" and then follow the directions.
We can borrow many of the books, videos and sound recordings which we do not own. Just go the home page, click on 'Contact Us' and then 'Request Interlibrary Loan". Or ask at the Adult Reference Desk or the Children's Circulation Desk.
