Library Cards

Library cards are required for checking out materials and for using many library services and materials. 

Those who are eligible for a free WCPL library card:
  • Residents of Wayne County
  • Owners of property in Wayne County
  • Students and teachers in Wayne County
  • Owners of existing companies or corporations licensed to operate in Wayne County.

Persons who do not meet the qualifications listed above are eligible for a Wayne County Public Library card upon payment of a $15.00 non-refundable, non-resident fee.  This fee is a yearly fee and entitles the holder to all benefits provided by the Library system.  This card must be renewed yearly. 

Valid identification must be presented in order to get a library card.  Positive identification (preferably NC driver’s license or special ID) with a current address is required.

You may register for a library card at any Wayne County Public Library location, and one card works at all branches.
