Q – What is my PIN number? A – Your pin number is typically the last four digits of the phone number listed on your library card account. This was assigned to you when you first registered for a card. If you can’t quite remember, try your home phone first and then try your cell phone. If neither of these are working, please email the library at email@example.com or call our temporary Reference number, (914) 734-5362 on weekdays between 10am and 4pm.
