Individuals less than 16 years of age must have parental authorization to obtain a library card. A parent or guardian must be present to give parental authorization.
Library cards are valid for three years and will automatically renew for another three‑year period if you have a balance of less than $20 on your account. You may be asked to show photo ID and/or proof of address during your next visit to any MDPLS branch location. If you have a balance of $20 or more on your account, you must pay any outstanding balances before renewal. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your password is a 4‑digit number you selected when you registered for your library card or updated your account. If you provided an email address when you signed up for your library card or updated your account and have forgotten your password, go to My Account and click Forgot your Password? Enter your library card number and you’ll receive an email with a temporary eight‑digit password that will allow you to log in to your account. You should then reset your password to a 4‑digit number.
A lost or stolen library card must be reported immediately in order for the Library to deactivate the card and to prevent unauthorized use. You may visit or call your local branch to report the card lost or stolen.
