Library Cards

​COVID-19 Update:


Library cards are still available during the building closure, and your new card will work at all libraries in the South Central Library System. 

Please complete our online library card application, and a member of the Fitchburg Library staff will contact you within a few days. 

If you have any questions about your Library account or issues with the form, please feel free to email us at fitchburg.circulation@fitchburgwi.gov, or call the Circulation department at 608-729-1761. 

When we reopen:

Get your Fitchburg Public Library card by completing a card application and visiting the library in person. Please bring a photo I.D. and proof of residence.

Identification Options


A driver's license with current residence is the easiest way to apply. If you do not have that, we will accept photo ID plus:
  • Checkbook with name and current address
  • Current lease with name and address
  • Piece of mail if the envelope has your name, current address, and a postmark dated within the last 30 days
If your identification has a P.O. box or business address, you must still show proof of your current home address.

Anyone under 16 years of age must have a parent or guardian present in order to get a library card.
