If you are 18 years or older, and live, own property, or attend school in the City or Town of Poughkeepsie, you can complete this online form. Upon verification, you will receive an email with your library account barcode number and instructions on how to set a Personal Identification Number (PIN). This library card number can be used to access all of our e-Library including eBooks, downloadable audiobooks, streaming videos, and databases without having to come to the Library!

If you want to check out any physical items or visit other libraries in Mid-Hudson Library System, you will need your physical Library Card. Simply visit the check-out desk with valid photo ID and proof of address for verification. An example of address verification can be an envelope (recently postmarked) with your current address, such as a utility bill. If you are new to the area and your photo ID doesn’t have your current address, please bring two pieces of mail with your current address.
