HOW DO I GET A LIBRARY CARD?

SIGN UP ONLINE

Our digital library never closes! In just two steps, you can sign up for a temporary card to get immediate access to our digital resources and place up to three holds on library materials.

  1. Complete this form. (You will get a temporary card number, write that down!)
  2. Create your PIN.

Convert your temporary card to a full service card by visiting any Arapahoe Libraries location with proof of address and ID. If you can't come into a library contact us for more options.

  • Temporary cards are good for up to 6 months.
  • Not all resources are available with a temporary card number.

WHAT IF I DON'T LIVE IN ARAPAHOE COUNTY?

That's okay, we love to share! We issue Colorado Library cards to any Colorado resident with a photo ID and proof of address. Once you're in, you're family and you'll have all the same benefits as our local patrons.

Just passing through? Welcome to Colorado! Visit any Arapahoe Libraries location and we'll set you up with a temporary resident card. If you can't come into a library contact us for more options. With a temporary resident card you can check out up to seven items, use the library computers, request and renew items and access online resources.

Temporary resident cards are also available to patrons in temporary housing, including homeless shelters or rehabilitation facilities (check out community resources for more information).
