How soon will I receive my library card number?

In most cases we are able to issue a digital card within 24 hours. Applications received after 3 p.m. on Saturday or received on a Sunday may not be processed until Monday. If you apply for a card online, you will not receive a physical card.

To exchange your digital card number for a physical card, visit any library branch during open hours.


How to Use Your Library Card

Visit one of our libraries for full access to library services: Just present your ID and your library card number to the staff member assisting you. Or, use one of our many self-check terminals. Your card number and PIN are also used to place items on reserve, and have them transferred to the library nearest you.

Or visit the Lake Parks Book Locker to pick up reserved items and return library materials by using your card number and PIN. The Lake Park Book Locker is accessible 24/7, located at the corner of Lake Ridge Pkwy and Lynn Creek, outside the Lake Parks Operations Center.
