Borrower Services

Boylston Street Building, First Floor

Visit Borrower Services to register for a library card, check out and return books, pick-up a museum pass, pay fines, and update your personal information.

To register for a library card, bring a picture ID and proof of Massachusetts residency, which can be either a physical document or an official document available on a computer or electronic device. A Massachusetts driver’s license or ID card satisfies both requirements.

If you don’t have a Massachusetts driver’s license or state ID, you can bring some other form of ID that shows your picture and signature along with official mail sent to you at a Massachusetts address.

Kids ages 12 and under can get a card with the signature of a parent or guardian.
