Each year Herrick District Library patrons check out over a million items!
Getting a library card is easy, and your first card is free. To see our library card brochure, click here. The brochure is also available in Spanish - click here. Individuals must meet the following requirements:
Residents of the City of Holland, or Holland, Park, Laketown, Fillmore, Heath, Manlius, or Port Sheldon townships are eligible for a Herrick Library card.
Adults must have a Michigan driver's license, state identification card, or other picture id with a current local address. Residents who do not have any of these items may visit the Circulation Services desk and the library staff will advise them.
Children must be at least five years old or in kindergarten, and be able to print their first and last names. They must also have a parent or legal guardian's signature on their registration cards.
For people who do not reside in the Herrick District Library service area, non-resident library cards are available for $50 annually for print only and $100 annually for print and A-V; non-resident cards do not allow access to databases or downloadables.
Herrick is a member of the Lakeland Library Cooperative (LLC), a group of 75+ west Michigan libraries which have agreed to share resources in order to better serve their communities. A Herrick Library card may be used at any of the other libraries in the cooperative. See the back of your library card or visit theLLC web sitefor a listing of the member libraries.
If the material you want is not owned by a library in the Lakeland Cooperative, ask your librarian about a Superloan request. For a nominal fee, materials can be ordered on Superloan from libraries all over the country for Herrick residents.
If you have any questions about fines or fees, please call the Overdues Desk at 355.3704.
Materials may be renewed in person at the library, online under "My Account", or by telephone to 616-494-8282.
Materials that are not returned are not available for others to use or borrow. In August of 2001, the library engaged the services of Unique Management Services (UMS), a collection agency, to aid in the effort to bring these missing materials back for others to use and enjoy. For additional information, contact the Circulation Services Department at the Main Library at 355.3100.
