Get a Library Card

You can apply for a new Milwaukee County Federated Library System card even while we are not able to have people inside the library building.

After completing the application form, a staff member will be in touch with you to confirm your card has been created, give you the card number, and share the instructions to create a private PIN (password) for your account. You need a PIN in order to place requests for items via the catalog and/or use digital materials from the library system.

Your physical library card will be mailed to you. Please allow 1-3 days for processing your request.
