- Currently this service is only for patrons over 18. If seeking a juvenile card, business card, or other special-use library card, please visit your local library in person.
- If the system is unable to validate your information, you will be issued a temporary eCard that allows you access to electronic resources for 30 days. To upgrade to a card with full borrowing privileges, visit any County library with proof of ID and current address.
- Please be advised that individuals residing outside of Allegheny County who do not have a current Access PA library card from their home library may be assessed a fee when completing their registration at the library.
