Get a Card

Thank you for your interest in getting a library card! We offer two types of cards:

​​​​​​Standard Cards
A standard Alachua County Library District card is free to any Florida resident. To register, residents 18 years of age and older must present photo identification and proof of residency in person at any branch location. Minors (ages 4-17) must be accompanied by a legal guardian as the Responsible Party.  Please note some digital materials such as OverDrive are limited to residents of Putnam, Alachua, and Levy (PAL) counties.

Digital Cards
Adult Alachua County residents can register online for a free digital card. These library cards can be used to access digital books and audiobooks, databases, and other online resources. If county residence is successfully verified, applicants will receive a welcome email with new account information and instructions.

Student Cards
All students of Alachua County Public Schools and P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School at the University of Florida are issued student cards at the beginning of the school year.
