Online Library Card Registration

Don’t have a library card yet? Don’t worry! We can help.

Anyone who lives within the Mid-Hudson Library System is eligible for a free library card.

In order to have a library card, you will need to come to the library with a photo ID and proof of address. However, if you live in Pawling or Holmes, you can jump start the process by registering online. Online registrations allow you to reserve items in our catalog and to access certain digital resources. If you register online, you have up to thirty days to come in to the library to validate your card.

If you already have a library card but cannot locate it, please do not register online for a new account. Instead, please call the library at 845-855-3444.

Have a question not answered above? Please call the library or email our Circulation Supervisor, Tom Clemmons, at
