What is the difference between a Library card and a membership card?
Membership cards are for donors of $50 and above who choose to receive membership benefits. Membership cards may be used throughout the Philadelphia area for discounts at participating retailers. They may not be used as a substitute for a Library card, which enables card holders to check out materials from the Library and access the Free Library’s internet. For questions about obtaining a Library card, or to report a lost or stolen card, please call your local branch or click here.
