People who live, work, attend school, or own property in communities in Pottawatomie, McClain, and Cleveland counties are eligible for library cards.
There are three types of library cards, a Traditional Library Card, which provides access to online materials as well as books and videos inside our hometown libraries, a Virtual Library Card, which provides access to online materials only, or a Reciprocal Library Card, which provides access to library materials for individuals who live in the Metropolitan Library System service area.
► To apply for a Traditional Library Card, which will be mailed to you and require a library visit to activate it, complete the Traditional Library Card online form.
► To apply for a Virtual Library Card, complete the Virtual Library Card online form.
► To apply for a Reciprocal Library Card, please visit one of our hometown libraries.
Just So You Know:
If you already have a library card, you do not need a Virtual Library Card to access online resources. Your current PLS library card already grants you access to our online resources!
If you currently have a library card and do not know your PIN (usually last 4 digits of phone #), please use the PIN Reset Form to reset your PIN.
