can't find "Login" button

Login/My SJPL is a blue button in the top right corner of your screen. If you don't see it and only see a username, you or someone else may be already logged in.

Gracias por tomarte el tiempo de contactarnos. Después de aplicar para una tarjeta de la biblioteca en línea, deberías de haber recibido un correo electrónico con tu número de tarjeta. Con ese número de tarjeta, puedes ir a esta liga para crear tu PIN. Si no puedes crear el PIN o si tienes más preguntas, por favor no dudes en comunicarte con nosotros.

It keeps telling me my pin/username is wrong when it’s NOT. It’s keeping me from browsing and I’ve tried resetting my pin already . What’s up with these technical difficulties.. it’s reoccurring.
