Boston Public Library - Get an eCard

You do not need an eCard if you have a physical Boston Public Library card. Your physical card allows you all the benefits of an eCard (and more). Only one card of either type is permitted per individual.

You cannot renew a physical library card using this form. Please renew physical cards at one of our locations.
