Get a Library Card

How do I get a library card?

Residents of Massachusetts, employees of the Town of Brookline, students in Brookline public or private schools, and owners of property in Brookline may be issued a Minuteman Library Network card at the Public Library of Brookline or one of its branches. You do not have to go to your hometown library to get a card.

Adults must present a picture ID (MA driver's license or Massachusetts state identification card with current address). If your photo ID does not have your current address, please bring along one of the following that does:

* Utility or tax bill dated within 60 days

* Printed payroll check with current address

* Correspondence on official letterhead from a local organization dated within the past 30 days
