Library Cards

Residents of the Boroughs of Collingswood and Woodlynne are eligible for free library cards. You need to come to the library in person to sign up for a card.

Free cards are available for the following non-Collingswood residents:

  • Non-resident owners of property in Collingswood
  • Non-resident teachers and administrators in Collingswood public and parochial schools
  • Non-resident employees of the Borough of Collingswood
  • Non-resident clergy on the staff of Collingswood churches
  • Owners of Businesses located in Collingswood

Non-residents who are not eligible for free cards are welcome to join the Library for an annual fee of $50. Non-resident seniors (ages 65 and above) may join the library for $35 per year.

When applying for membership, adults must present current traceable identification, which includes both name and address: for example, a driver’s license, rent receipt, utility bill, bankbook, or apartment lease. Non-resident owners of property or of a business should present a borough tax bill. Children in kindergarten through age 17 are issued children’s cards, which must be signed by a parent or guardian.

Cards for residents are generally issued for a period of two years. Non-resident cards are issued for one year. The replacement fee for a lost card is $1.

Patrons need to show their own library card (in-person or on their phones) or valid photo I.D. in order to check-out, renew, hold, or pick-up items.
