How to Get a Library Card

Billerica Residents:
A physical Billerica Public Library card is available to all Billerica residents. Property owners and those employed in town may also obtain a card if they are not already part of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC). The Library will follow MVLC policies and procedures when registering patrons who are residents of MVLC communities. 

Please note: Library cards need to be renewed at least every three years, depending on the type of card issued.

Can Children/Teens get library cards?

  • Children five years and older may obtain a card with a parent’s or guardian’s signature from the Children’s Room. Caregivers who get a card in a child’s name assume the responsibility for all items checked out on that card.
  • Teens 14 and over with a photo ID can sign for their own card.

Other Massachusetts Residents:
Patrons residing in Massachusetts, attending school in Massachusetts, or owning property in Massachusetts may receive a MVLC library card or have their current card linked to our system if they reside in a non-MVLC Massachusetts community. Depending on residency, the MVLC card will grant access to Libby, other e-resources provided through MVLC, and possibly any e-resources offered by the home library. Proper identification is required.

Out of State Residents:
Per MVLC policy, out-of-state residents may only obtain a card upon proof they work in Massachusetts, attend school in Massachusetts, or own property in Massachusetts.

For more information, see our Circulation Policy.
