Telecirc - 601-825-5450

Telecirc is an automated system that allows patrons to call, using a touch-tone phone, and access the Library’s card catalog system.  With TeleCirc you can find out what items you have checked out, overdue, or on hold.  You may renew items, cancel holds, or find a list of total fines owed — all without library staff assistance.

You will need your library card barcode number and your Personal Identification Number you used when you applied for your library card to renew items via TeleCirc.

TeleCirc automatically notifies you of any holds waiting for you at the library as well as any overdue items you have out.

If you do not wish to be contacted by TeleCirc, please contact the staff at your local library.
