Residents and property owners who live in Allentown or Salisbury Township can get a FREE library card with valid form of identification at the Circulation Desk.
People with a current library card from other Pennsylvania public libraries can get a library card at the Allentown Public Library by showing their photo ID and home library card (with a blue and white PA Access sticker on it placed by their home library).
Your library card is for your personal use only. Each individual family member must get his or her own. Parents of children up to 12 years of age must sign for the child’s card and show identification. A legal guardian must present proper documentation.
You are responsible for anything that is checked out on your card, so please don’t lend it to anyone and report it to us immediately if you lose it. Please bring your library card with you whenever you come to the library. If you forget, you must have identification before we will check anything out to you. This is for your protection.
