Finding New Online Services for You
We are working to provide you with as many free online services as possible and have developed a new way for non-cardholders or New Library Patrons to Get a Library Card from home!
Get a Library Card within 24-Hours
Visit our Get a Card page, fill out the application, and all eligible applicants will receive an email within 24-hours with their new, personal Library Card information.

Cards issued while we are closed will expire within 6 months from the date of issue. When the Library reopens, please bring your valid ID to the Library to extend your expiration date.
