If you live in the DBRL region, you're eligible for a free DBRL library card.
Get a Card Online
Adults (18+) can request a library card online. After we receive your application, we’ll mail your card along with instructions on how to activate it by e-mail.
Renew Your Card Online
You can renew your library card online, as well. Cards renew for two years.
Get a Card In Person
You can get a library card at any DBRL location or either bookmobile. You'll need photo identification and proof of current address (e.g. a utility bill).
Get a Card By Postal Mail
If you use the paper form, you can either bring it to your library or mail it to us. When we receive your application in the mail, we will mail your card to you.
You can get a card at any age, but applications for minors (those under the age of 18) must be signed by a parent or guardian. Parents or guardians are responsible for the selection, use, and return of library materials and for the child's access to and use of library computers and the Internet.
If you lose your library card, please let us know immediately so we can assign you a new card number and transfer your record. This protects you in case someone tries to use your lost or stolen card. There is a 50¢ fee for a replacement library card.
Your Library Account
You must present your library card to check out books, renew, place holds, have your library record accessed by staff (including over the phone or by e-mail), or use a library computer. We value your right to confidential library records, therefore, we will only release account information to you if you have the card number or can verify your identity as the cardholder. This includes parents wishing to see a child's record.
Your library card expires every two years. Library staff can renew your card over the phone or at check-out. If at any time your name or address information change, please let us know.
