Get a Hutchinson Public Library Card

Apply online or come to the library.

To apply online, go to this link:

Fill out a form for each member of the family or yourself.  You must include either your phone number or email address.  These two fields are not marked as required, and it is essential we have a way to contact you.

To pick up your card, you will need to bring your photo ID with you, along with proof of current address if not included on your ID. Parents and guardians may show their photo ID for children under 18.  If your card is not picked up in 60 days, it will be deactivated.

If you prefer, you can pick up your new card through our ‘no-touch’ Library Material Pick-Up Service. Staff will contact you when your card is ready.
