Get or Renew Your Library Card

Library cards will be issued free of charge to individuals residing in Unincorporated Greenburgh. Persons who do not reside in Westchester County, but work or are students in Unincorporated Greenburgh are eligible for a free library card.

Verification of Eligibility. Please see Library Card Eligibility and Identification Requirements.

Library cards are issued to adults in person at the Greenburgh Library or online. Library cards for children will only be issued IN PERSON, at the library.

The identification of a parent or legal guardian is acceptable identification for patrons ages 12 to 18. A juvenile patron is defined as any person 12 years old or younger, and a parent or legal guardian’s signature is required before a card is issued. The juvenile patron does not have to be present.

Please use the form below when applying online. If you apply online, your card will be mailed to you.

Application for a Library Card

    NOTE: Individuals 18 years of age and older living outside of Westchester County and employed by companies in unincorporated Greenburgh must provide: 1. Personal identification with the name and address, such as those required by residents 18 years and older. AND 2. A letter on their employer's stationary verifying their employment. OR 3. A paycheck or paystub dated within three months that includes that employers address.
  • NOTE: If you are a parent applying for yourself and your children, please complete a form for each child. We will mail your card and ask that you please come into the library to obtain your children(s) cards. This applies to children under 12 years of age. After completing the online form, you must read and accept the Statement of Responsibility below. Once you have clicked the Accept button, this will be considered the equivalent of your signature and your application will be valid for processing.

Renew Your Card

Library cards may be renewed in person with valid identification at the Greenburgh Public Library, or other libraries within the Westchester Library System.

Replace Your Card

In order to replace a lost card, the patron must come into the library with proof of identity, proof of residence and pay a lost card replacement fee of $3.00.

PIN Numbers

To provide a greater level of security and privacy, you will be required to log-in to the online library catalog using your library card number and a personalized identification number (PIN) before viewing information about your account or to place a hold. Your PIN will initially be the last 4 digits of the phone number on your library card account. To verify or update the phone number on your library card account, please call or visit your local public library. Westchester Library System (WLS) encourages you to change your PIN to something that will be easy to remember, but that only you will know.
