Apply for a Library Card

An email address is required to apply for a Brown County Library card online. If you do not have an email address, please visit any Brown County Library in person to apply for a card (bring a valid form of picture identification and proof of current address).

Please note: This application is only for individuals who do not currently have a Brown County Library card. Click here to update your contact information for an existing library account. 

Upon successful registration, we will use the email address you have entered to send the library card number for the account. You may use your library card number and provided PIN to place holds on physical library materials and for immediate access to our digital collection and databases.

You will also receive our monthly BCL Insider email newsletter and announcements from the Library. You may unsubscribe from these communications at any time. Brown County Library will not share your information with a third party. Your email will only be used for updates about your account and other library-related information.
