Get A Library Card

From Friday July 12, 2024 at 5:00 PM to Saturday, July 13, 2024 at 9 AM, our library card system is being updated. During this time, you will not be able to get a library card, access your library card account, or access some of the digital library. Thank you for your patience.

Every Maricopa County resident, business owner, or property owner and resident of the Town of Queen Creek is eligible for a free library card from Maricopa County Library District. If you are an Adult (18+) who resides in these areas, you may apply for a library card using the form below.

You may also visit one of our libraries in-person, or book a virtual appointment with a us. You will need to bring your Photo Identification with current address on it. If your current address is not on your photo identification, bring a separate proof of residency.

If you are under the age of 18, or live outside of these boundaries, you will need to visit or contact us to register for your library account.
