Get or Renew Cards

Update: How to borrow during the current Library closure

  • Renew cards: Call us at 303-661-1163.
  • New cards : use card numbers to place holds on items in our catalog, access online magazines and databases, and download eBooks and eAudiobooks from Overdrive or Libby.
    • Call 303-661-1163 (and provide proof of address once we reopen)
    • We can mail you the new card or add it to your next curbside pickup!
    • Or, apply online for a temporary card. Temporary cards are not always able to be used to place items on hold; we recommend you call us (leave a message if necessary) or contact us online, to make a new card over the phone.
  • View more details about our Online Library, or read additional Library status updates.

Get a free Library card

  • Apply in person at any Lafayette Library service desk.
  • Bring proof of Colorado residency to activate your card.
  • Computer-access-only cards are available if you don’t wish to borrow items
  • Colorado residents must have their own computer or borrowing card to use the public computers. (Guest passes are available for out-of-state visitors.)
  • Accounts are for an individual, not a family. Children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent to get a borrowing card, but may obtain a computer access card without a parent present.
