How Do I Find Out My PIN?

Your PIN is the last four digits of your home phone number. So, if your home phone number is 303-404-5555, then your PIN should be 5555. However, on occasion, this is not the case. If you can’t access the system with the last four digits of your phone number, contact the library.
