A library card gives you free access to over 6 million books, CDS, DVDS, magazines, and online resources to borrow or stream!
Apply for a library card in person at the Newton Free Library or at any other Minuteman library with a photo ID and proof of address. Proof of address can be your Driver’s License or a piece of mail.
You may also start the registration process online to sign up for a six month Minuteman library card, and then visit Newton Free Library to complete your application with your ID and proof of address.
Children and Teen Applicants:
Your first library card is a special milestone! Children 5 years or older, or in kindergarten, are eligible for their own library card.
Children under the age of 12 may apply for a library card if they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian with a photo ID and proof of address.
Teens, age 12–17, who are unable to meet the ID and address requirements, may apply for a library card with a parent or legal guardian using their photo ID and proof of address.
The child or teen must be present with the parent or legal guardian to apply for a library card.
Please remember to bring your library card with you each time you visit.
