How to Get a Library Card

You are eligible to receive a library card if you live, work, go to school or own property in Westchester County. Each member library has its own policies for issuing a library card. Contact your local public library for what information and identification is required when applying for a library card.


To find your local library, take a look at our interactive map.


If you live outside of Westchester County and DO NOT work, go to school, or own property in Westchester, you may purchase a card from the Westchester Library System at an annual fee of $75. An application form is available, which should be sent directly to WLS with your payment. Your card will be mailed to you directly from the Westchester Library System and is honored at all Westchester public libraries.
