Your Library Card — It's the Most Important Card in Your Wallet

Library cards are free to Lexington County residents and property owners. To register for your card, visit any library branch and complete an application. You’ll need photo identification and proof of residency. You can also register for a library card online. Non-resident property owners must provide a current property tax receipt. Non-residents who don't own property in Lexington County can get a library card for a yearly $35 fee.

Acceptable proof of residency is a valid driver’s license with current address or a photo identification and one of the following:

For minors under the age of 15 a parent or legal guardian must sign the application.

How to Sign Up for Your Library Card Online

Signing up for a library card has never been easier and you’ll have instant access to digital materials — including ebooks, audiobooks and magazines through Libby/Overdrive — and ebooks, audiobooks, movies, and even TV shows through Hoopla. All that in two simple steps.

  1. ‎Complete the online form at lexcolibrary.com/mylibrarycard
  2. Write down your temporary barcode because you’ll need it to access Hoopla, Libby/OverDrive & RBdigital. (It’ll look something like PACREG123456)

These digital-access cards will automatically expire in six months time without address verification, which is suspended at this time. We hope you enjoy accessing our digital options. If you have questions, contact us at (803) 785-2613 or ask@lexcolibrary.com.
