Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a library card?

All Texas residents are eligible to become members of the Lake Travis Community Library. Simply fill out an application at the library and bring proof of Texas residency (usually a Texas driver’s license). The library issues family cards and borrowers must be 18 or older to register for a library card.

What is my PIN or password?

How many items can I check out?
There is a limit of 50 items at one time.

How long can I keep my items?
All books may be checked out for two weeks.

Can I renew my items?
Most items can be renewed. Exceptions are DVDs and materials reserved by other library users. Materials can only be renewed twice which means a patron can have material out for six weeks.

Do you charge overdue fines?

Yes, fines are $0.10 per day per item. Fines max out at $5.00 per item.

How do I obtain materials that are not currently in the library?
There are three ways: 1) Place a request for the library to purchase the material, 2) Request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) for the material, or 3) Obtain a TexShare Card and use it to borrow the materials at another library which participates in the TexShare Card program. Information about the TexShare Card, and participating libraries, is here.
