Are you stuck at home without a library card to access all of our free online ebooks, movies, and music? Our buildings may be closed right now, but you can still get a new or replacement library card!
What you'll need for a full-service library card by email:
- Take a picture of your driver's license or other photo ID that has your current address. If your ID doesn't have your current address, send a photo of a piece of mail or a legal document with your name and current address on it.
also include following additional information, if available:
- Your preferred library location (this is for when we re-open; you can always change this later)
- If you prefer to be notified of items ready for pick up by email or phone
- Your email address
- Your telephone number
- What 4-digit PIN number you want (it works like a password)
How it works by email:
- Email us (email@example.com).
- Send a picture of your ID with your current home address, and the information listed in "What you'll need," above.
- Once we have this information from you, we will send your new library card number to you via email. You can use it right away.
- Then we will send your physical card to you in the mail, along with a brief overview of our regular library services.
A library card gives you free access to these digital services:
- Up to 20 ebooks on our OverDrive/Libby service (and 10 holds)
- Up to 10 ebooks on our RBdigital service (and 5 holds)
- Unlimited streaming of Acorn (British TV), Indieflix videos, Quello (concerts), and Póngalo (Fotonovelas in Spanish), with a pass that you renew every 7 days

- Up to 10 Kanopy streaming videos a month
- Unlimited Kanopy Kids streaming videos
- Unlimited use of our online language classes, auto repair manuals, genealogy research services, legal forms, and much more.
