Get a Library Card

Option 1: Permanent Card
Come to the library and get a permanent card. Bring an ID and proof of current residence (a mailed bill or another official document) to Eager Free Public Library. You will be asked to fill out a short form and then you’ll be issued a card.

Option 2: Instant Temporary Card
Get an instant temporary card online now, then convert it to a permanent card when you get a chance. Use it to checkout materials from the library, access digital audiobooks and ebooks (OverDrive, Libby, & Hoopla), use our Lynda.com subscription, Creativebug art & craft tutorials, and Brainfuse HelpNow tutoring and homework help. Temporary cards do not work for Gale Courses or Transparent Language.

Use your card at all the public libraries in the counties of Rock, Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth.

Library cards are free to most Wisconsin residents.
