One Card, Infinite Possibilities

Because the public libraries in Allegheny County share resources, cardholders can borrow materials at any of the 70+ libraries in the county and return them to any library in the county. Library cards are good at Western Allegheny Community Library, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, its branches, and all district libraries in Allegheny County.

How to Get a Library Card

There are two ways to get your free library card:

  • Visit the library’s circulation desk during open hours with photo identification and verification of current address.
  • Register for a temporary library card online. With this option, you can reserve materials, but you must complete registration upon picking up requested items.
