How to Get a Library Card

To sign up for a regular library card, you need to come in to the library. Please bring with you some form of ID and, if need be, something with your current address on it. It only takes about 5 minutes and you'll be set with your new library card!


If you don't have a regular library card from a MORE-member library and you're a Wisconsin resident, you can get an e-card to use MORE's shared electronic resources. Find the e-card self-registration form here.

Getting a free library card is easy and allows you to...

    • Check out materials from any of the libraries that share the MORE online catalog

    • Get materials from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan

    • Use computers at the library

Any Wisconsin resident is eligible for a library card. Visit the library with proof of your current residential street address (driver’s license, mail/bills, or anything that shows your current street address).

You are responsible for any materials that are checked out on your library card.

Library staff will check yearly for up-to-date address and phone number information.

You must use your library card at least once in three years for your card to stay on file.

Please report any lost or stolen cards to the us immediately, we will place a block on the card until it is found or replaced. You must provide identification to receive a new card. Replacement cards are available for no charge.
