How do I get a library card?
Library cards are free and are available for all Waterbury residents.
Patrons wishing to receive a library card must apply at the Library's Circulation Desk at the main library.
Adults are required to have TWO forms of identification:
- A photo ID (driver's license, state ID, passport);
- A utility bill, tax bill, check book, car registration, or a recent piece of mail (no more than three months old) with current Waterbury address.
Children who wish to obtain a library card are required to have a parent or legal guardian present who has the above two forms of identification.
You can submit an online application through our consortium, Bibliomation. You will still need to bring a photo ID and proof of address in person to the library in order to pick up your new card.
