Getting Your Card

A CADL membership is the key to unlocking valuable library services that inform and entertain.

Four-year memberships are free to residents of any age who live in our service area. Use your card to check out physical items from our branches, or stream and download items from our digital collections—or do both! One card covers it all. CADL memberships can save $900 per year by just checking out one item per week.

Types of Membership 

In addition to regular memberships for adults, we offer special options for youth and for businesses and institutions.

Applying for Membership

There are two ways to apply for a CADL membership: online or at a branch.

Apply Online

This option is available to both resident and non-resident youth and adults. After submitting the application, you will receive a number that can be used to access digital services immediately. Then, within the next six months:

  • Resident adults must verify the account by uploading images of your photo ID and proof of residency via our online account renewal form or making an appointment to verify in person. Once that step is completed, your membership can be used for all CADL services. If you do not verify it, the account will expire.
  • Resident youth must verify by uploading images of the photo ID and proof of residency of the guardian/parent who submitted the application via our online account renewal form or making an appointment to verify in person. If you do not verify it, the account will expire.
  • Non-residents must make an appointment at a CADL branch to purchase a membership. Unless that step is completed, the account will expire.
