Delaware 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.
