Library cards need to be renewed every year or so, in order to help keep library records up to date.  This also helps protect patron privacy, as expired cards are eventually purged from the system. 

To renew your card, please visit the library in person and bring your photo ID with proof of residency, just to make sure.  You can renew your card at any Delaware public library since we are a statewide system.  Here is a list of libraries with hours, locations and contact information.

It may also be helpful for you to have this link to the Delaware Library "Help" page; it has some great information on a variety of topics that may be of interest and useful to you.

Thank you again for using Ask a Librarian Delaware and for your support and use of our Delaware Libraries.
