Delaware library card imageDelaware residents can get a library card for free, simply by filling out a Patron Registration Form and bringing proof of residency and a photo ID to one of the Delaware public libraries.  You can print and fill out the form ahead of time, and bring it to the library with your photo ID and proof of residency.  Or just request a patron registration form when you visit the library.

Out-of-state patrons can also receive a library card.  Fill out the patron registration form and submit this and a fee to the public library you visit.

Delaware library cards can be used to access all 33 public libraries in Delaware, including many online resources such as ebooks, streaming video, and excellent databases.

  2. Hi Jane! Thanks for asking!

    If you mean to borrow physical items from libraries, like print books, DVDs, CDs, etc., here is a FAQ on that called "How do I reserve books" You can use your library card at any DE public library, place holds/requests on items that you'd like sent to the library you want, and return items to any DE public library, too.

    If you want to borrow ebooks,eAudiobooks, here is a FAQ on that: It's a guide to get you started on finding electronic materials of interest.

    Please let us know if we can be of further help, anytime! We truly appreciate your service, and your use of our libraries. You can text, email, call, visit - whatever works for you:

    Thank you again, and have a great week,
