Get a Library Card

Scottsdale Library card Need to get a library card?
A Scottsdale Public Library card is free for all Maricopa County residents. (If you live outside of Maricopa County you can still get a Scottsdale Public Library card for a $30.00 annual fee.)

Your library card allows you to check out up to 30 library materials (including books, movies, music and eBooks) and gives you access to online subscription databases. You are able to have up to 12 items on ‘hold’ on your account, and there is a limit of 6 renewals per item.

You can go to any of our five library locations to get your card.

To expedite the process:

  • Stop by any Scottsdale Library to pick up your card.
    • You will need to bring a photo ID and proof of current physical address. (Though you have provided this information in your pre-registration, we need to verify it is you.)
    • If your photo ID does not include your current address, a second form of ID with your address, such as a utility bill, is required.

Effective November 1st 2013, The Scottsdale Public Library no longer offers a card that allows online access only.

To sign up at the library:
