Get a Library Card

Process for getting a Library card.

Library Card Registration

  • The library user may obtain a library card by registering in person at ATPL. Any resident of Addison Township is eligible to receive a library card. Proof of identity and residency must be provided at the time of application. The card must be renewed in person every three years.

  • The library user must show ID (Michigan driver’s license, Michigan ID card, or passport) with current Addison Township, Oxford, Leonard, Lakeville or Romeo address with a 48366, 48367, or 48370 zip code. If the library user has recently moved, evidence of local address may be demonstrated by recent official mail, voter’s registration, lease, or purchase agreement. A phone number must also be provided. They cannot have a current library card from any other location. If they have a card from a different location, it must be canceled. 

  • A temporary card will be issued to a library user who cannot prove residency. This card is valid for 30 days.

  • Minors under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian sign a permission form or be present who can provide resident verification as listed above. The legal guardian must have their own library card, cannot have any fines on their account, and must consent to financial responsibility for materials checked out on the minor’s library card. If a legal guardian’s library card is blocked, then the minor’s library card will also be blocked.

  • Non-residents may check out ATPL materials by registering their current home’s library card to a MILibraryCard status or become a The Library Network Shared Automation System (TLN SAS) Guest. A TLN SAS guest must have a valid library card from one of these locations: Birmingham, Balwin, Bloomfield Township, Brandon Township, Canton, Clarkston, Independence District, Dearborn Centennial, Bryant & Esper, Farmington Hills and Farmington Branch, Fowlerville District, Grosse Pointe Central, Huntington Park, Huntington Woods, Hamburg Township, Howell Carnegie, Northfield Township, Orion Township, Pinckney, Plymouth District, Rochester Hills, Southfield, West Bloomfield, Westland, or Ypsilanti District.

Patrons can also register for a card by printing the Library Card Registration form below, filling it out, and bringing it to the library along with your current ID.
