Surprise Public Library System Account Opt-In
By filling out the form, you can authorize MCLD to share your information with the Surprise Public Library SPLS, which now manages Asante, Hollyhock and Northwest Regional libraries.
You will be creating a second, separate library account to get a SPLS library card. A SPLS library card will be needed beginning July 1, 2023 to check out materials at Asante, Hollyhock and Northwest Regional/Surprise Regional libraries. By creating an account now, patrons will simply have to show ID to pick up their new SPLS library card from any SPLS location.
This form also provides the option for you to be added to the SPLS email distribution list to receive important library updates and information beginning July 1, 2023.
MCLD will continue to maintain your information as held in your current library account. Your county card will remain active, as a separate account from SPLS. Be sure to renew your card on or before your annual expiration date to continue access to MCLD's Digital Library or to check out county library materials at all MCLD branches. If you do not opt-in using this form, MCLD will not share your information with SPLS.
