Getting a Library Card

To obtain a free MPLS card please present your application and proof of identity and current WV mailing address. If your valid driver’s license or other photo ID has your current mailing address, that’s all you need. If your address is different from your identification please bring an addition item such as car registration, checkbook, or piece of mail from the last 30 days. Digital documents will also be accepted.

Not a resident of WV, but still want to use the Morgantown Public Library System? No problem, Out of State cards are available for $20 a year.

Children ages 4-15 will need a responsible adult to sign for their card and show proof of address.

New cards are limited to 5 items the first time, after that patrons may borrow up to 99 items.

Library cards expire yearly, to renew your card, call, email, or stop in to verify your address. You can find out when your card expires by creating an online account.
