Starting September 25, 2016, all new Platteville Public Library cards will be issued a PIN.
If you already have a card but don’t have a PIN:
16 or older? Stop by the library with your card and we’ll set your PIN.

With your PIN, you can:
- Place holds
- Renew items
- See what you have checked out
- Use the Wisconsin Digital Library (OverDrive) for ebooks and audiobooks
- Access the Internet on library computers
