Getting & Using My Library Card

Apply Online
Adults can complete and submit an application online.

Apply Using Mobile App
Adults can submit an application using the Chester County Library System mobile app. Two forms of valid ID that verify current address are required when using the mobile app to apply for a library card. The app is available to download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Apply In Person
Download, print and bring your completed application to any Chester County Library with valid ID (i.e., driver's license) to verify your current address (required).

Adult Application Form
Minor's Application Form (under 18 years of age)

When applying in person, applicants must be present at the library to obtain their new card. Parent or guardian must sign and show valid ID for application of a minor under 18 years of age.

Renew Your Card
Adult accounts expire every three years. You can renew your account in person, at any Chester County Library System member library, by presenting ID that verifies your current address. You can also renew your account using the Chester County Library System mobile app. Two forms of ID that verify current address are required when using the mobile app to renew an expired card.

Minor accounts expire when the cardholder reaches 18 years of age. When a minor’s account expires they must re-apply as an adult cardholder either in person, online or using the mobile app.

Not sure when your card will expire? Check your account expiration date online at My Account or contact the Circulation Desk, circdesk@ccls.org or 610-344-4975.
