Photograph By Sarah MurrayIf you live, work, go to school or own property in Worcester County you are eligible for a free library card. Maryland residents with acceptable ID are eligible for a free Worcester County Library card. Non-residents can obtain a library card for an annual fee of $10. Young people, under 18 years old, must have a parent's or guardian's signature to obtain a card. Please bring identification or verification of residency.
Cards are valid for three years and may be used at all public libraries throughout Maryland. If you do not have a library card you may register for a temporary online registration number. Your temporary number will authenticate access to many of the library's electronic databases and allow you to place holds on library materials. Please click here for details.
Honor System Books
Each branch has a collection of "Honor System" books, mainly paperback, that are available to the public. A library card is not required to check out these books. We accept paperback donations as well.
