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:

  1. A photo ID (driver's license, state ID, passport); 
  2. 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.


Apply Online

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.
