If you have any other card with the BPL, you are not eligible for an eCard (and don’t need one!). You cannot renew a physical library card using this form. If your library card number starts with 29999, you have a physical library card. You can only renew physical cards at one of our locations.
If you have any questions about eligibility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
