How to Get a Library Card


The Basics to Obtaining A Library Card

Anyone in Westmoreland County is entitled to a free library card.

If you live in a different county, but work or visit our library, just bring your library card from your home library plus the following identification and you can obtain our card for free.

For adults (16 and older):

  • 2 forms of I.D. are required, including one with a current address and photo I.D.

Children (5 to 15 years):

  • Must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • This adult must have 2 forms of I.D. including one with a current address and photo I.D.

If you are a college student or a temporary resident, you must provide a local address and a home address.
