Need a library card?

Getting a library card is a simple and rewarding process. Start by visiting your local library with a valid photo ID and proof of address, such as a utility bill or lease agreement. Many libraries also offer online registration, allowing you to fill out a form and upload your documents digitally. Once your application is approved, you’ll receive your library card, granting you access to a wealth of resources, including books, e-books, audiobooks, and various community programs. Learn more by heading to the Maricopa County Library District website.
