Get a Library Card

Statewide Library Cards are Free to Maryland Residents

Apply at Any Cecil County Public Library Location. Please bring a government-issued photo ID.

We charge $35 per year for out-of-state residents wishing to obtain a library card. This fee is waived for Cecil County Public School teachers who live outside Maryland. Teachers should bring their CCPS ID card when applying for a library card.

Cecil County residents without existing cards can sign up for an Online Card. 

All Cecil County Public School students and educators receive a free virtual library card. 

We also welcome library cards from any other Maryland county public library. However, we will need to enter your information into our system to activate your card. Please present your library card and government-issued photo ID that shows proof of Maryland residence to desk staff to begin using your card within the Cecil County Public Library system.
