Apply for a Library Card

September is Library Card Sign Up Month!
Children who sign up for a new card will get a free sticker and adults will be entered into prize drawings held throughout the month. Sign up today for your chance to win!

Anyone who lives in the South Central Library System service area can apply for a free library card valid at all 65 libraries in the system. If you already have a card from another member library, there is no need for a new card. 

To apply:

  • Request an application form at the library or print at home: Library Card Application Form
  • Bring the completed form to the main desk along with a photo ID and proof of current address if not updated on your ID.
    • Acceptable proof of address: utility bill, car registration, bank statement, check, renter's agreement, closing documents, etc.
  • Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to sign the registration form and present a photo ID and proof of address.

Lost/expired cards or forgotten PIN: Please call the library at 608-838-9030 or visit the main desk for assistance.

Address changes: Please bring in photo ID and proof of address if your ID has not been updated accordingly (see examples above).
