Two Ways to Register for an MCPL Card

Get your card immediately...

Register in person at any branch, bringing proof of address and a photo ID. You may bring a completed printable registration form (also available in Spanish), but it is not required.

Get a temporary card for immediate use...

Click here to register for a temporary card. This temporary ID is valid for 30 days and may be used to place holds on desired titles and use most online service. Please exchange the temporary ID for a library card with full privileges at any MCPL library. You will be asked to verify the information you entered with photo ID and proof of address.

Please write down this ID as you will need it and your PIN to log in until a permanent card is assigned.
