Yes, a library card is needed to check out items from the library.
A new library card costs $1.00 which can be paid in cash, check or with a debit/credit card. You need to have current picture identification printed with your name and current Saratoga Springs address. We will also accept picture identification and recently delivered mail or pay stub, current auto insurance card or current year property tax notice with your name and current Saratoga Springs address printed on it.
When you received your library card, you agreed to be responsible for all fines, damages, losses and collection fees associated with your account.
An adult card for individuals over 18 can have as many as 50 items checked out and are limited to 10 DVDs, 5 video games, and 3 kits. A youth card for individuals between the ages of 13-17 can have as many as 10 items checked out. A child card for individuals under 12 can have as many as 5 items checked out. DVDs and video games must be checked out on an adult card.
The check-out period for books, kits, & audio books is 21 days. DVDs and video games are checked out for 7 days. An email receipt of your check out is automatically sent to the email address on file. There is no date due stamped on any item checked out. You are also able to check the date due and how many items you have checked out on our library catalog website or with the BookMyne app. There is no grace period. Books being returned via the outside book drop may be considered overdue if they are not returned inside the library on the day which they are due back.
All items except for Interlibrary Loan can be renewed 3 times (as long as there are no holds on the item). You can renew your books by bringing them in to the library, calling the library on the phone during library open hours and speaking to a library employee, or online. If books are renewed online on the day they are due, the renewal must be done before midnight or there will be an overdue fine assessed. When you call for a renewal please have your library card number available.
You may change your pin once you are logged in online or by calling the library during open hours at 801-766-6513. You must have your card number available for us to access the account. We can only reset the PIN to the last four digits of the account number.
Our fines and fees are:
Please do not tape any books or pages. The library uses special glue to fix ripped, torn or loose pages and covers. Tape is actually bad for the paper the books are printed on. So, if you accidentally rip a page or find a torn or loose page, please gather the pieces and let a librarian know about the damage when you bring the item back. In most cases there won't be a charge for ripped pages.
Internet is available to use in the library. You can use one of our computers- Microsoft Office 2010 word processing, PowerPoint and spreadsheet programs are available. Printing is available from the library computers; there is a 10¢ charge for each black and white page printed, and color pages are charged at 25¢ each.
We also offer wireless; check at the front desk for the wireless password. Printing is not available from the wireless.
If you have a current Saratoga Springs Library card, interlibrary loan of some items from other libraries is available. We will only process requests for items we do not have in our catalog. There is a form available at the library that you need to fill out. The process takes 2 to 3 weeks and there is a $3.00 fee to help cover postage costs. If we receive the item you request, you are responsible for the $3.00 fee regardless of the condition of the item or if you no longer require the item.
You may also check American Fork, Eagle Mountain, Highland, Lehi and Pleasant Grove Libraries. Your Saratoga Springs Library card is accepted at these libraries as long as your card is up to date and you have no fines or other blocks such as lost books and you pay ½ of that library’s non-resident fee.
As a patron you can have access to eBooks and eAudiobooks by going to Utah's Online Library or through the Online Resources page of our site.
The library will accept VISA and MasterCard for charges of $1.00 or more.
Yes, our outside book drop and media drop are located on the southwest corner of the library building.
The library can now email a pre-overdue notice to you if you have registered your email address with the library. This will be sent out 1 days prior to the due date of items.
We would also like to remind patrons that this is a courtesy service. If patrons do not receive the notice, due to error on our part or theirs, patrons are still responsible to turn in their items on the date they were told when they checked those items out, or there will be fines assessed to the account.
We will send you an overdue notice 1 week after your books are due back at the library. If you have provided your email address, your overdue notices and notice of items on hold will be emailed. You will receive a final notice when your items are 8 weeks overdue. Any library cards which have more than $50 in overdue or damaged items fines will be sent to our collections agency.
You are always welcome to call to find out when your items are due or access your account online through our website.
