Use our online card registration form to get your card.

Visit card.smrld.org and complete the form; be sure to include your email address and/or phone number so that we can provide you with your new library card number.

Please allow 48 hours for your card number to be assigned to you.

Online Library card numbers are suspended after 90 days. Please visit the Library to keep your Library Card active and to receive your physical card.

Notice to Non-Residents

Because the library is financially supported by the taxes paid by residents of the Six Mile Regional Library District, it is necessary to charge persons living outside the library district a fee for a library card. An annual non-resident card may be purchased for $149.00 and used by the entire household.
