​The Amazing Library Card



Consider Phoenix Public Library as a place to start when you need something. Today, your library offers so much more than books. While books are, and always will be a core feature, having a Phoenix Public Library Card offers you access to a more significant range of information, resources, and more.

Get an eCard while we are closed for in-person services. Get instant digital access of Phoenix Public Library resources and the ability to place up to 15 holds for Curbside Service pickup of materials.


​Top 5 Reasons to Get the Amazing Library Card


The Reading.

Because reading changes everything, at every age. The earlier your child reads, the better life potential they have. Reading stimulates every reader's mind, reduces stress and improves memory and imagination.


The Simplicity.

Because you can reduce the amount of "stuff" you keep. Borrow our "stuff" (we have more than one million items available for checkout) as often as you want! Each card can place up to 15 holds for pick up at Curbside Service.


The Choice.

Because you can visit any of our 16 locations offering Curbside Service and check out materials that interest you and your family. Or, from the comfort of your home download eBooks, stream movies/music/television, read magazines and newspapers, research with a database or take an online class.


The Experts.

Because having information matters and having the right information matters more. With Phoenix Public Library you have access to highly trained experts who can provide hands-on assistance in building your child's literacy and school readiness, writing a resume, applying for college and financial aid, drafting a business plan, polishing up those computer skills, and more! Visit our Online Programs calendar and find a program that interests you.


The Saving.

Because everything you will find at Phoenix Public Library is free.
