How do I get a library card?

Colorado residents who are 17 years of age or older can register for a Jefferson County Public Library account by visiting any of our locations with a current photo ID. Residents who are under 17 may do so with a parent or guardians signature.

You can also apply for a temporary library card online to start placing holds and using our website, then visit any of our libraries within three weeks with your photo ID to get a permanent library card.

Acceptable forms of ID for users 17+ to register for new library card:

  • State issued Driver’s License or ID card
  • Passport, Military ID, or Matricula Consular card
  • University or School ID

Your ID doesn’t need to list CO address, but new registrants must have an address in Colorado.
