Anyone can apply for a library card online! When you use our online application, the system issues you a temporary library card number, that may be use to place holds, instantly.
Eligible applicants (adults residing or owning property in the incorporated city limits of Mount Vernon) will be mailed a provisional Library card. This card is good for 30 days, but needs to be brought in to the Library (with your picture ID) to be converted to a permanent card.
People residing within the boundaries of one of our reciprocal partners are also eligible for free cards. Others may purchase a card.
For details, and our online application are available here.
