Get a Library Card

Apply online or visit your local SDCL branch to sign up. Bring a valid photo ID and proof of your current address with you to pick up your card. If you're under 18, you will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Library cards will not be renewed/replaced unless all overdue fines/fees are paid. Overdue accounts of $100 or more will be subject to collection agency action (Unique National Collections).

The customer is responsible for all materials borrowed on his/her card. Report lost or stolen library cards immediately.
