Library Card Q&A

Who can get a library card, where can it be used?

Library cards are issued to Wisconsin residents by the public libraries in Rock County for free and grant the holder access to each public library in a four-county area including Rock County, Kenosha County, Racine County, and Walworth County. Use your library card barcode and personal identification number (PIN) to access the online account portal, reserve materials online, to use our online tools and so much more.

Does my library card expire?

Library cards are valid for two years. If a library card is not renewed within three years of expiring, the associated patron record will be purged. If this happens, you may re-apply for a library card by completing the registration process again.

Does the library offer different types of library cards?

Edgerton Public Library offers one type of library card.
