Library Card Sign Up Month

Library Card Sign Up Web Header

Celebrate Library Card Sign Up Month in September and receive a brand new, limited edition library card!

A library card grants you access to a plethora of fun and useful resources. Your library ID, the 14 digit number found on the back of your card, grants you access to all sorts of materials. This includes digital materials found on HooplaKanopy, and OverDrive so you can watch movies, listen to your favorite audiobooks, and download your favorite soundtracks on the go. You will also have access to all sorts of helpful learning tools for picking up a new language, getting creative, or tutoring help. You can view all the digital resources we have to offer by clicking here.

Applying for a new Library Card:

To get a new library card you will need two proofs of address and your photo ID. Although you can be of any age to get a library card, applicants under 18 years of age must be present with their legal guardian to apply. You must be 18 or older to apply online.

Would your child like to get a card, but no parent or guardian is readily available? Then they can get a 3 For Me library card! This card allows children under the age of 18 to easily and immediately get a library card without an adult signature. They are limited to only three books but will not be fined for replacement costs should they lose an item. They may ask a children’s librarian for a form or you can download and print one here. All they need is this form and themselves to get a 3 For Me Library card.
