Getting a Library Card

Library cardsWith a Bridgewater Public Library card you have access to a whole world of books, music, movies, online resources, and MUCH MORE and it is all FREE!

Massachusetts residents can register for a library card in person at the Circulation Desk. To register for a library card, proper photo identification must be presented showing name and current address.  Examples are: driver's license, learner's permit, utility bill, etc.

If you have lost your card, a replacement card can be issued to you for $1.00.

Children able to print their first and last name or who have entered Kindergarten may sign up for their own library card. For new borrowers under the age of 16 a parent's signature and proof of address is required.

Patrons can register for a temporary virtual library card for immediate access to library resources. Online registrants will be required to pick up a physical card before the virtual card expiration date in order to continue using library resources.

*NOTE: Bridgewater Public Library currently is not issuing new physical cards. If you are interested in registering for a card at this time, please register for a temporary virtual card.
