A Starr card opens up an exciting universe. Books, DVDs, audio books, downloadable titles from our library and the other 65 libraries in the Mid-Hudson Library System are available to you.

Getting a Library Card

In Person

To get a card in person, please bring some form of ID and a piece of mail (utility bill, rental agreement, etc.) and fill out a short form. We will issue you a card on the spot, and you may begin borrowing our materials. Children need a parent or caregiver to fill out the form and assume responsibility for materials borrowed on their cards.

Cardholders accept responsibility for all items borrowed on their cards.

If you would like online access to our databases, or remotely order / renew materials, we will set up a PIN to accompany your library card. This can be done in person or over the phone. Once logged in, you may also renew, pay fines, turn on your reading history, download ebooks and digital audiobooks, freeze requests and more!
