 Get a Library Card


Don’t forget your Library Card!

Patrons of all ages can apply for a card. To receive a card you will need identification with your current address, such as a driver’s license, a piece of cancelled mail, a bank statement, or a bill with  your current address.

Children  and teens under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  (If you are applying for a card for your child, see our “So, You Want to Get a Library Card” flyer here.)

You have your choice of a wallet card or a keychain card.  You can also scan your library card barcode and store it on your phone using a free app such as Cardstar, available to download here.

Cards are available at the circulation desk in the lobby at the Main Library and also at the Manomet Branch Library.

You also have the option of registering for an e-card by completing this registration form.  Your e-card will allow you to place holds on print books, CDs, and DVDs.  To borrow items from the library and access Plymouth research databases (including those with e-books and magazines), you will need to upgrade to a permanent card when you visit.

What is my Personal Identification Number or PIN?

The default PIN for all library cards is OCLN (not case sensitive).  If you wish to renew or place items on hold by logging into your account, for privacy reasons you may want to change your PIN, which can be done by logging into your account and choosing the “Personal Information” tab, which will show the menu option to “Change PIN.”  If you forget your PIN, you can call us at 508-830-4250 and we can re-set it for you.

Lost/Missing Cards

The replacement fee for a lost card is $2.00.
