Submit an application via this online form, and pick up your card next time you visit us in person. If you are a staff member at a school, non-profit, or community service organization, you can apply for an institutional library card.
IMPORTANT: Once you have your card number, you’ll need to set up a password before you can use it. You can do that here.
Once you log in with your library card number and password, you can see a list of everything you have checked out, renew your items, and place holds as well as search the catalog.
Smartphone users can download the MARINet app for easy account access – and the app will store a virtual library card, so no need to bring the real thing in with you!
