YOUR LIBRARY CARD
Library cards are issued to residents by the public libraries in Rock County for free and grant the holder access to each public library in a four-county area including Rock County, Kenosha County, Racine County, and Walworth County. Use your library card barcode and personal identification number (PIN) to access the online account portal, reserve materials online, to use our online tools and so much more.

Does my library card expire?
Beginning in 2018, library cards will be valid for two years*. If a library card is not renewed within three years of expiring, the associated patron record will be purged. If this happens, you may re-apply for a library card by completing the registration process again. To renew your library card, call or stop by the library.
Are there different types of library cards?
Milton Public Library offers one all-purpose card for use by all ages.
