How to Get a Library Card
Adults may register for library cards at any of the Richmond Public Library locations by presenting identification (a driver's license with a current address, or a photo ID and a document that shows your current address).
Out-of-town students should also bring identification showing their Richmond address.
Come at least 15 minutes before the library closes.
On your first check out you may only take two items. Once they have been returned the total limit goes up to 20 items checked out at a time.
Cards may be used at all Richmond Public Library locations. If you lose your card, a replacement will cost $1.
Library cards must be renewed annually to verify that information is correct. If there are any fines or fees on the record, the account must be paid to a $0.00 balance before the card can be renewed.
Metro area residents are not charged for a Richmond Public Library card.
