Springfield City Library has added the ability to apply for a library card online!
This process is for new cards only – if you need to renew an existing card, please call us at 413-263-6828 x218 or any Springfield City Library location. If you’re not sure if you have a CW MARS (Central Western Massachusetts Resource Sharing) card already, ask us!
Before you apply, please read about library card policies here.
After you apply for a library card online, a staff member will call you to complete the library card registration process over the phone. Once completed, the staff member will make an appointment with you to come to the library and verify your information. You will then be given your library card number. Your library card will be mailed to your address.
To apply, please click the library card registration link for the branch nearest you (a list of our locations can be found here). Library cards can be used throughout the entire CW MARS network, you are not limited to the branch you receive it from. If you have any questions, feel free to call any Springfield City Library location, or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
