Library Card

Library cards are free and will open the doors to a whole world of books, movies, music, programs for kids and adults, computers and online information. A library card gives borrowing privileges at all branches and provides access to the library's online resources.

Applications are available at all branches and can also be printed in either English or Spanish from the links that follow. The application must be submitted in person. When you apply for a library card, you agree to return borrowed materials on time, pay overdue fees, and be responsible for lost or damaged items.

You may choose to set up a personal identification number (PIN)/password for your account at the time the card is issued, or anytime thereafter. You can change your PIN/password at any library branch or online at any time. A PIN/password will allow you to place holds and renew items online, as well as authenticating to use our e-Resources. Contact the library for assistance. If you have forgotten your PIN number, you can reset it on our online catalog.
