People of all ages are able to get library cards for free.

Please apply in person at your local library branch. You can fill out a library card application either at home or at the branch. Bring your current photo ID and proof of address with you. Some examples of proof of address include utility bills, auto registration, a lease agreement or anything with your name on it that has been recently mailed to you.

If you are a parent getting a library card for your child, we ask that your child comes with you to the library to receive the card.

Customers who do not have photo ID and/or proof of address, and children aged 8 and over who are at the library without a parent are welcome to apply for library cards with limited borrowing capabilities. Please visit our Library Card Guide for more information on the limits in place for these cards.

Children under the age of 8 must have a parent/guardian with them to get a library card.

  1. Nowhere does it say I have to live in Albuquerque to get a card. So I live in Los Lunas, can I get a library card?
