Searching Our Online Catalog
Gilmer Public Library is part of The West Virginia Library Network, a consortium of 114 public and academic libraries across 37 counties. The WVLN was created in 2020 when the Mountain and Northern Library Networks merged in order to leverage more purchasing power and to provide new, updated, and improved services for library users across the state.
To access your online library account and search the collection of Gilmer Public Library or other libraries in the WVLN, you will be accessing the Web Pac Pro platform. Web Pac Pro is an online system that allows GPL patrons to search the Millenium Library Catalog of books and movies within the entire network.
Once you create an account, you can reserve books, renew your books, track books you have read, access book reviews, search titles by author or subject, and more. Scroll down for a video tutorial.
In order to set up an account, Gilmer Public Library must have an email address included in your library account. If you are unsure if you have an email associated with your card, or aren't sure what email is listed, call 304-462-5620.
Funding for this catalog is provided by the Library Services and Technology Act administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the West Virginia Library Commission. For more help, view the tutorial below.

What do I need to access My Account?

When I try to log in to My Account, I get the message "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display the nonsecure items?" Is your site really secure? What can I do about this message?
This message is your Web browser's attempt to keep you safe while you are logged in to a secure site. Rest assured that our site is secure; the "nonsecure" items that the message is referring to are Web addresses that don't belong to the Gilmer Public Library. Unfortunately, we cannot change how your browser treats these links from our end. If you want to disable this alert in Internet Explorer: Go to Tools > Internet Options.... On the Security tab, click the "Custom Level..." button. Scroll down to "Display mixed content" and choose Disable.
When I try to log in to My Account, nothing happens or I get an error message. What is the issue?
We apologize that you're having difficulty logging in. If you are receiving the error message: "Sorry, the information you submitted was invalid. Please try again." The barcode you entered was not recognized by our system. There could be several reasons for this:
1. You have mistyped the barcode. Make sure the number you type has 14 digits and does not include spaces.
2. Your library account has long expired, and has been removed from our database. Visit Gilmer Public Library to obtain a new card.
3. You are not entering a Gilmer Public Library card number, which begins with "6072." You may be able to use another eligible West Virginia Library Network card, but it must first be entered into our database. Contact Gilmer Public Library branch for assistance.
4. If you are receiving error messages other than the ones above, or if the system returns you to the login page or a blank page after you log in, there may be some minor adjustments you need to make to your PC that will help. We have done our best to test the system and ensure that it works properly in many different browsing environments, but we have learned that the configuration of a person's PC and/or Internet browser may affect the system's ability to transfer and display account information correctly.
