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) or fill out the application online. The library issues family cards and borrowers must be 18 or older to register for a library card.

What is my PIN or password?

Your PIN or password is your 10-digit phone number. You can change your password by logging in to your account and clicking “Set a secure password” in the Account Info tab.

How many items can I check out?

There is a limit of 50 items at one time, including a maximum of 10 children’s DVDs, 10 adult DVDs, 10 family DVDs, and 10 television DVDs.

How long can I keep my items?

All items may be checked out for two weeks.

Can I renew my items?

Yes! Materials can be renewed manually by logging into your account. We also offer automatic renewals of items which have reached their due date. If items can be successfully renewed, your checkouts will be extended an additional two weeks – just as if you’d logged into your account and renewed the items yourself. The system will send an email or text message notice letting you know about the automatic renewal attempt and your updated due dates, depending on your notification preferences.

Certain items can’t be renewed, automatically or otherwise, and must be returned to the library by their due dates:

      • Items on reserve for another patron
      • Items that have been renewed twice
Do you charge overdue fines?

No, the library does not charge fines for overdue materials. However, a fee will be charged if an item is lost or damaged.

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.

Can I borrow eBooks or download audiobooks?

Yes! Lake Travis Community Library has expanded its services with audiobooks, eBooks, music, and video, available to download for free! Library card holders can check out and download digital media anytime, anywhere through Libby.

Does the library have WiFi?

Yes! You should also be able to pick up the wireless signal from our patio and throughout the parking lot. No password is needed.

Does the library offer technology assistance?

Yes! We offer several options for technology assistance including in-person help with volunteer tech coaches, online help with tech tutorials and written columns on popular technology topics. Please visit the Tech Coach page for more details.
