We require that all residents of New Mexico who wish to use our services visit one of our branches in person to apply for our card, and once every three years after that to update it. During the application process, we need to verify a valid photo ID, current mailing address as well as have you sign our electronic signature pad agreeing to our terms and conditions regarding use of our material, both physical and digital.
Our primary service area is the city limits of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County, but we do allow residents outside our service area to use our system. Because our digital subscription services are more broad than other libraries in the state, all residents of NM should have access to these resources. In order to do this, and adhere to contracts with eResource providers, all card holders must apply and update thier account in person.
