How To Get a Library Card
In order to check out library materials or request items from other libraries, you must have a current library card.
Any resident of a Massachusetts community which is eligible to receive State Aid to Libraries Grants, or any full-time student in Massachusetts, is entitled to a free library card. Current library cards from other public libraries in C/WMARS (Central/Western Massachusetts Automated Resource Sharing) may be used to borrow Meekins materials. However, college library cards may not be used at public libraries. Check this list of C/WMARS libraries or look for C/WMARS on the card.
If you live in another state, you may purchase a library card for an annual fee of $35.
You can apply for a card at the Circulation Desk at the library. To register you must:
  1. fill out an application
  2. present a photo ID, such as
    • a driver's license,
    • a passport, or
    • school ID
  3. present proof of current address, such as
    • recently cancelled mail with current address,
    • a driver's license with current address,
    • pre-printed bank checks with current address,
    • a lease,
    • up-to-date car registration, or
    • FID card.
Children must be at least 4 years old to register, and a parent or guardian must co-sign the application.All children who sign-up for their first library card receive a "welcome" book bag with prizes inside!
Replacement cards cost $1.00.
