Library cards are free! Just stop by the check-out desk at any Sonoma County Library location and show identification with your current address. There is no charge for the card or for borrowing library materials.

Save time getting your card at the library! 
Fill out and print this library card application ahead of time, and bring it with you to the library. 

Parents must sign the library card applications for children 17 and under.

Library cards expire every 2 years. To renew your card, visit the check-out desk at your local library and bring current identification. Library cards cannot be renewed online. If you owe any library fines or fees, you must pay them in order to renew your card.

You must have your card in order to:

  • Check out materials.
  • Request a book on hold.
  • Use Library Internet workstations.
  • Gain access to databases from outside the Library.
  • Access your account.

If your library card is lost or stolen, call the library immediately.
