Get a Library Card

Click here to register for a Pleasanton Library eCard

California residents can get instant access to the library's digital resources by registering for a Pleasanton Library eCard. eCards remain active for 30 days. After you register for an eCard, visit the library to pick up your library card and activate your membership for four years.

You can pick up a library card by visiting our "Member Services" desk with any of the following identification: 

  • Driver's license 
  • U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Green Card 
  • California ID card 
  • U.S. Passport
  • Student ID Card 

If you don't have any identification listing a current address, one of the following may be used for address verification only:

  • Imprinted bank checks
  • Utility bill with name and current address
  • Rent receipt or proof of ownership papers
  • Mail addressed to them at the indicated address

If you have acceptable identification but cannot verify your current address, a library card may be issued to you but borrowing will be limited to three items until the card is received in the mail. All library cards will be mailed to new members within two weeks of initial registration.

A library card is an agreement between the Pleasanton Public Library and the borrower in which the borrower agrees to abide by the rules of the Library and to be responsible for all library materials checked out on the card.

Borrowers who are under 14 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian enter their first and last names on the registration page. Appropriate identification must be shown from both the registered borrower and the individual signing for responsibility. (Paper registration forms are available at the library and may be taken home, but must be returned with the appropriate signature and identification for verification of that signature.)
