Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start using the lending library?

First, you'll need to create a Libib patron profile.  Log in to myWSBA and complete the sign-up page.  From there, you can immediately start using the library by visiting Libib:

Lending Library_Access Lending Library Snapshot

Once you're ready to place a hold, set a password for your account:

Lending Library_Need Password


I'm getting an error message that I'm ineligible to access the library.

After you log in to myWSBA, if you receive an error message that says "Our records indicate that you are not eligible to use the Lending Library," but you are a licensed WSBA member, it may be that you are using the wrong log-in credentials.

Try logging in to myWSBA with your WSBA license/bar number, as opposed to an email address.  That should solve the problem.  If you are still receiving that error message as a licensed WSBA member, please email us so we can help.

What happens after I place a hold?

If the book is available, we will automatically ship it to you within two business days, using the address you provided for your Libib account.

If the book is checked out to someone else, it should become available within 2-3 weeks and we will ship it to you once it is returned.

Can I stop by in person?

You can stop by and borrow books in person at the WSBA offices, but at this point, we are not able to give you the option of placing a hold online and picking up the title in person.

To visit the library, check in with the reception desk on our main floor:

Washington State Bar Association
1325 Fourth Ave., Suite 600
Seattle, WA 98101-2539 

You can stop by anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.

How can I renew the books I have checked out?

If another member has not placed a hold on the book, you can renew for an additional two weeks.

To renew your books, visit wsba.libib.com and select "Patron Login":

After logging in, you can see your "active items" (books checked out to you) and will have the option to renew if it is available to you:

Lending Library_Renew Items

How do I return books?

If you're in the area, you can stop by the WSBA offices in person and drop the books off at the front reception desk on the sixth floor. You can stop by anytime between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Otherwise, you can return books by shipping them to us at the address below (you'll be responsible for the cost of return shipping):

Washington State Bar Association
Attn: Lending Library
1325 Fourth Ave., Suite 600
Seattle, WA 98101-2539
