Get a Library Card

Scottsdale Library card Need to get a library card?
A Scottsdale Public Library card is free for all Maricopa County residents.
(If you live outside of Maricopa County you can still get a Scottsdale Public Library card for a $43.00 annual fee.)

Your library card allows you to check out up to 30 library materials (including books, movies, music and eBooks) and gives you access to online subscription databases. You are able to have up to 12 items on ‘hold’ on your account, and there is a limit of 6 renewals per item. You can go to any of our five library locations to get your card.


Sign up at the library:

  1. Stop by any Scottsdale Library. You will need to bring a photo ID and proof of current physical address. If your photo ID does not include your current physical address, a second form of ID with your physical address is required (P.O. Boxes not accepted).

    • Acceptable forms of Photo ID:
      • Drivers license
      • Federal, state or local government ID card
      • Passport
      • School ID card
      • U.S. Military card
