How do I get a library card?
All Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County residents are entitled to a free library card. To receive a City Library card, you must visit a City Library location with the information listed here. Official photo ID with name, birth date, and current Salt Lake County address is required for either a Basic or an Expanded Library Card. An official and current piece of mail, such as a utility or credit card bill, may be used along with photo ID to provide the correct residential address. An Introductory Card, with a four-week expiration date, may be issued using photo ID that lacks a current address. A second form of ID with the correct residential address must be presented prior to the expiration date; a patron may then choose either the Basic or Expanded option. A library card is issued on the spot and can be used immediately. Patrons under the age of 18 must obtain a parent's or legal guardian's consent.
