Getting A Library Card

A library card is free to all Bucks County residents and may be used at all member libraries of the Bucks County Free Library system. When you borrow materials from the library, you are responsible for the proper care and return of all items and any fines and fees incurred. Your agreement also includes notifying the library of all changes to your information, including name, address, e-mail address, phone number or any other personal data. Your Bucks County Library card allows you to:

  • Borrow books, DVDs, music, museum passes, and more
  • Download eBooks and audiobooks
  • Place holds and reserve items
  • Search articles and databases

To get a library card, apply in person with:

  • Completed Library card application
  • Valid photo ID card
  • Proof of current address if not shown on your identification
  • If you live outside of Bucks County, you will need a current library card from your local library with an Access PA sticker
  • Anyone under the age of 16 must have a parent or legal guardian present to sign the application and accept responsibility
  • Call Joan with questions

E-Cards

  • If you only want to use our digital services, then you can apply for an e-card here

Renewals, Loan Periods, and Fines

Lost Library Card

  • To prevent and limit misuse, library card holders should notify the library if their card is lost or stolen as soon as possible. The card will then be immediately suspended. Card holders will be responsible for materials checked out up to the time the library is notified.

ChildrensArea081516Visit the Library. Each week that you read, return it to the library to have your log stamped and we will give you a raffle ticket for our grand prizes. Record your weekly minutes on a paper tile so we can add it to our growing torch display. Create a minute goal and if you reach it by the end of the summer you’ll get a free book.

Check our calendar. Join us for events all summer long.

Work together. Reading to others or having someone read to you also counts towards our goal.

For Pre-Schoolers and their Adults: Sign-up for Let’s Play School. See if you can read 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.
