Apply in Person:
In order to apply for a library card in person you will need to fill out the application, present photo identification, in addition to proof of address.
Minors will need a parent/guardian to sign for them.
Residents outside of Allegheny County may also receive a free card if their home county library participates in Access PA.
Click on the “Log In or Register” button on the top right of the home page.
- This service currently is only for adult patrons over 18. If seeking a juvenile card, business card, or other special-use library card, please visit your local library in person.
- If the system is unable to validate your information, you will be issued a temporary eCard that allows you access to electronic resources for 30 days. To upgrade to a card with full borrowing privileges, visit an Allegheny County public library with proof of ID and current address.
