Information about Getting a Public Library Card

Getting a library card is very easy.  As a resident of Polk County, library cards are available at no charge.  Parent or guardian of child will need to bring in proof of identification and residency, such as a valid driver’s license, utility bill or insurance card to their local library to get a library card.  Residents, property owners and business owners, employees and students of Polk County Public Schools and employees of Polk County Gov’t and Polk County college students may qualify for a free library card.

A Polk County library card is good at all 15 public libraries, including special collection libraries like the Historical Genealogical Library and Law Library located in Bartow.  We have a bookmobile making 13 stops throughout Polk County and B-Mail (books-by-mail ) offering free home delivery service (anything you can find in your library can be delivered to your home).

To get the ball rolling, parents can go online to register for a library card (follow link below) and pick their card up at their library.

You can register for a card online via this link. 

This is a placeholder until you can get to the library to complete your registration; after a month, the account will close.
