Apply for a Library Card

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).
