A driver's license with current residence is the easiest way to apply. If you do not have that, we will accept photo ID plus:
Checkbook with name and current address
Current lease with name and address
Piece of mail if the envelope has your name, current address, and a postmark dated within the last 30 days
If your identification has a P.O. box or business address, you must still show proof of your current home address.
Anyone under 16 years of age must have a parent or guardian present in order to get a library card.
Please report lost or stolen library cards immediately by calling (608) 729-1761. Any items checked out are the responsibility of the card holder. You can obtain a replacement card at no cost by visiting the library's first floor Information Desk.
Complete the card application online, print it, and bring to the library. Alternatively, you may download a card application below:
