How to Obtain a Library Card

Acceptable Forms of Identification


Change of Address or Phone Number

If you have changed your address since applying for a library card, please come in person and bring a proof of your new address. To update your phone number, please come in with a photo ID, a new application will not be required.

Expiration Dates

To keep records current, the library sets a 3-year expiration for all library cards.
To continue library services once the card expires, bring in your library card, a photo ID and a proof of your current address. Your current card will be reactivated. A replacement fee is charged for lost cards.

Lost or Stolen Library Cards

Please call the library immediately if your library card is ever out of your possession. You are responsible for all charges and materials on your card until you notify the library that the card is lost. You may replace a lost or stolen card at any HBPL location by showing a valid photo ID, proof of current address, and paying a replacement fee.
