Borrowing Library Materials

Obtaining a library card and PIN

All NWC students, faculty and staff are issued a NWC ID card that becomes your library card when we affix a library bar code number to it.

Community users may obtain a NWC community library card by asking at the front circulation counter or by contacting us . Community users may also use their Powell or Park County library card or another Wyoming-issued (WYLD ) library card.

NWC library cards are accepted at the Park County Public Libraries in Powell, Cody, and Meeteetse.

Your PIN number is assigned when you receive your library card (Other Wyoming library cards will have their own PIN numbers). Don't know your PIN?--come see us or contact us. You may change your PIN by logging on to Your Library Account.

You will need your library card number and PIN. Library Card # example: 29092... (do not include "a" or "b")
