Get a Library Card In Person

For Adults and Young Adults (ages 13 and up)

To get a library card, please bring a piece of identification with your name and current address to one of our Circulation desks. Your card will be issued immediately and may be used the same day at any Minuteman library. Cards are not issued online.

Please remember to bring your library card with you each time you visit. There is no charge for your initial library card, nor is there a charge for replacement cards.


We recommend waiting until your child's 5th birthday to get them their own library card, but every family is different! Children under the age of 12 may apply for a library card if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian with a piece of identification with their name and current address.
