How do I get a library card?
Any Milwaukee County resident may apply for a free library card. Applicants are required to fill out the designated System Borrower's application and provide appropriate identification. Applicants age fourteen (14) and under must have a parent or guardian countersign the application and assume responsibility for library use by the juvenile patron.

Library cards expire every 2 years. Address verification is required to renew an expired card.

Library cards are not transferable. Others may not use your card without written permission.
