Your Library Card

Everyone is eligible for a library card. To apply for a card, simply present a picture ID with proof of a current address and fill out a registration form at the Circulation Desk. Proof of address can be a driver's license, utility bill, or other non-personal piece of mail addressed to you. Please remember to bring your card with you when you come to the Library. It helps us to serve you faster and more efficiently. In the event that you have forgotten your library card we require some other form of identification such as a driver's license in order to check out materials to you.


Children of any age can get their own library cards, but a parent or guardian must sign for any child under the age of 18. Parents are responsible for loss or damage to materials checked out on a child's card. Please note that your child will be free to use any resources we make available. We do not restrict children's borrowing privileges or access to computers. Rather, we encourage parents to take an active interest in their children's reading and discuss with them appropriate uses of technology.


Any Massachusetts resident may register and use any public library in the Commonwealth. It's easier if you register in the town where you live; however, NOBLE (North of Boston Library Exchange) libraries will issue a library card to anyone with a picture ID and proof of a current address. Once you have a library card, you can use it at most other libraries without the need to get multiple cards.

We take your right to privacy very seriously, therefore, we request that you use only your own card and recommend that you do not give your card to others. This is also why we cannot discuss any details of your account over the phone or share that information with family members.

Please Note

If you change your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, please let us know so we can update your card information. Without current contact information we will not be able to reach you when we need to inform you that reserves, interlibrary loans, or other information that has arrived for you.
