A free Poughkeepsie Public Library District card is available to all people who live, work, own property, or attend school in the City or Town of Poughkeepsie with proof of identification and status. Your card allows you to borrow materials from the Poughkeepsie Public Library District or in the Mid-Hudson Library System. It also allows you access to the many digital resources the Library District provides. Your library card is renewable every two years; your card expiration date can be found under your Library Account that you can access by clicking the My Account button on the top of our webpage.
We expect you to have your library card when in the library and we reserve the right to require you to present it for any library services. Further, we reserve the right to suspend your borrowing privileges if your account balance from fines and fees is $5.00 or more.
Please note that you are responsible for all items checked out on your card. Call the Library District immediately if your card is lost or stolen. Treat your library card like a credit card. First card replacement is $1; each subsequent replacement card is $5.
