Need a Library Card?

In our continuing efforts to provide our patrons with quality off-site library services, the Edgartown Library has created the option for a Temporary Library Card. To apply for a temporary library card, click the link below, fill out the form, download it, and email it to us at info@edgartownlibrary.org. Once you are registered, we will email you with your temporary library card information. This will grant you access to Libby, Kanopy, Hoopla, the New York Times online, and many more online library services.

Cards will be valid until June 30, 2020. ID is not required at this time, but upon re-opening, we will request ID in order to convert your temporary card into a permanent card. If you need any assistance, please email us at info@edgartownlibrary.org.
