Registering for a WPCL Card

If you live in the Pleasant Valley School District, registration for a library card at WPCL is free!  Please visit our Circulation Desk and fill out an application.  Proof of residency is required to obtain a library card.  A valid ID such as a driver's license, an auto registration, or a utility bill with the residence address can all be used as proof of residency. 

If you live outside the above-mentioned area, but have a local library card, you may also register free through the AccessPA program.  Please present your local library card that includes the blue AccessPA sticker on it during registration.  If your home library does not participate with AccessPA, you may register by paying a $47.00 annual fee for your family membership.

WPCL cards expire 1 year from issue date and are easily renewed annually by visiting the library,  or by calling 570-992-7934.  WPCL allows 15 items, including media, to be borrowed at a time and has a 3 week lending period (except where noted). 

 

Please read WPCL's Acceptable Usage Policy prior to registering for a WPCL card.
