How do I get a library card?
Most individuals who live in or pay library property taxes to Washington County are eligible for a free library card. Your library card is accepted at all Washington County Library branches and Library Express locations, Washington County Law Library, Stillwater Public Library, and Bayport Public Library.

Provide proof of your current address and photo identification at any branch to get a library card.

Individuals with library cards issued by any Regional Library System in Minnesota may register and enjoy borrowing privileges.
