Your Library Card

Signing up for a library card is easy and free!  

There are two ways to get a library card:

  • Visit the library and bring a photo ID with your current address
  • Complete an online form and receive a temporary card number that you can either convert to a full access card by visiting the library or if you only want access to the library's online resources, we can issue an internet card.

The online form to register for a new library card is here.  Information requested on the form includes name, physical address, email address, birthdate and telephone number.
