Library Cards
All permanent residents of the Easton Area School District, including the city of Easton, Forks Township, Palmer Township, and part of Lower Mount Bethel may obtain cards at no charge.

Annual subscription memberships are available, for $65 per household, to individuals who reside within the Easton Library District, as defined by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries. This includes the areas of Pen Argyl, Plainfield Township, Stockertown, Tatamy and Windgap. We do not sell cards outside of the Easton Library District.

All applicants must present current photo ID showing both their name and address at the time of registration. Applicants under age 18 also need a parent/guardian signature. Library cards are good for one year from the date of issue and must be renewed each year.

Computer Use Only cards are available for patrons unable to obtain a regular Library card.
Access PA Sticker
The Library participates in Access Pennsylvania, a statewide reciprocal borrowing program that includes the holdings of many types of libraries. This entitles our resident cardholders, in good standing, to borrowing privileges at over 500 public libraries in Pennsylvania.

If the Library does not have the items you want and you are an Easton Area School District resident, the Interlibrary Loan department will borrow it from another library for you at your request.  ILL Request
