How to Use Online Catalog Book Bags

Want to know how to use the Vermillion Public Library’s Online Catalog to save lists of books you would like to reserve? Watch this video to learn how to use book bags and reserve multiple items at once. Please note that you can have as many items in a book bag as you like, but can only reserve up to 10 items at one time for Adults, and 3 items for Child cards.

Book Chatter Online

With the library being closed to the public, we are finding ways to bring programming to our patrons through the wonders of the internet!

This Friday, April 3rd, 2020 we will be having a digital Book Chatter discussion. Visit and join the new Facebook Group for Book Chatter, and on Friday be prepared to contribute to the discussion by posting your recommended book(s) from the last month!

Since time is not an issue, we can keep the discussion going as long as we want. We’ll be posting a prompt to start discussions around noon on Friday, but you can start talking about your book whenever you would like!

Pick-up Service

During the pandemic, the Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is offering a Pick-up Service for patrons.

How Pick-up Works:

1. Please request your materials by:

  1. Placing reserves from the library catalog : (https://vermillionlibsd.booksys.net/opac/vermillionlibsd/index.html#menuHome)
    • You need to sign into your account. (Your username is your library card barcode, and your pin is your last name in lower case.) If you need assistance logging in, please call the library at 605-677-7060.
  2. Emailing [email protected]. Please make sure to provide your first and last name, address, and (if possible) your library card number.
  3. Calling 605-677-7060
    • Please note requests over the phone will be limited to five items.

* The preferred method of requesting materials is online via the library catalog. Please see the following video for a walk-through of how to do this. You can also 605-677-7060 and we will talk you through the process.

2. A staff member will call you when your items are ready for pick-up.

3. When you arrive at the library come to the southern parking lot entrance where the sliding doors are.

4. Please return your current items in the outside book drop. When you arrive to collect your materials, everything will be checked out and ready to go. You can either:

  1. Come to the vestibule to collect your library materials.
  2. Call 605-677-7060 and provide your name and we bring your materials out to the curb.

** If you request an item that is currently checked out, we will place a reserve for you and notify you when the materials are available for pick up.

*** Patrons can request a random selection of materials by providing a genre, topic or potential authors of interest. (Please note that while we will do our best to pick an excellence selection of random items, we cannot guarantee that the content will meet your expectations. Parents should review random items before providing them to their children to ensure they match their own family’s values.)

**** Puzzles will be temporarily unavailable for check out at this time.

***** Patrons who are home-bound or have limited or no transportation please contact the library for assistance getting materials to you.

TO COMPLY AS BEST AS POSSIBLE WITH CDC SOCIAL DISTANCING RECOMMENDATIONS WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING WALK-IN REQUESTS AT THE DOOR.
