How Do I Get a Library Card?

You must be 18 years old with a current government, school or employer issued photo ID that includes your full name OR at least 5 years old with a parent or legal guardian in attendance and able to sign the library card application (this parent or legal guardian must also have an Orem Library account and have photo identification present)

Library cards are free of charge for Orem or Provo residents. Nonresidents are required to pay a nonresident fee of $70 for six months or $120 for one year. The cities of Lindon, Vineyard, Alpine and Cedar Hills will reimburse a portion of that amount.

Please provide proof of address with one of the following:

  • A Driver License issued within the last 3 months
  • Current rental agreement or receipt
  • Any piece of mail with name and current address postmarked in the past 3 months

If you don’t have an Orem Library account and are a resident of Orem or Provo, you can register for a card by clicking here and choosing “Register for a new Library Card.”

To receive your library card after preregistration, you must complete your registration by presenting a current photo ID and proof of current address to the Library’s circulation desk within 14 days. If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian must be present at the time of registration with their own photo ID and Orem Library card.
