For security purposes, this should never be a simple password, such as your zip-code, birth date or even the same as your login user name. If your library district has a password convention, be sure to follow that. Otherwise, Marmot recommends a password at least 8 characters long, containing both letters and numbers, as well as at least one capital letter. Best practice would be to also include a “special character” such as !, #, $, %, ^, or ?. Do not put your password on a sticky note on the computer, monitor, or under the keyboard, or anywhere visible! These are the keys to all of your private information, as well as every patron or member of a Marmot Library!
