Can I get a Library Card?
Since the library is supported by local tax dollars, the following people may obtain a library card, free of charge:
- Residents of Bethlehem
- Employees of Bethlehem businesses, including teachers at Bethlehem Elementary and Profile School
- Owners of land in Bethlehem
- Students of Profile School, regardless of town of residency, good until the student graduates
- Seasonal residents (those who own property but live here only part of the year)
Residents of nearby towns may pay for a non-resident card. Annual cost is $50.
We do not currently offer a temporary card for vacationers. However, everyone can attend programs, browse our collection, and sit and read all day, free of charge!
How to Apply
Two ways to get a card:
Come to the library
Bring a driver's license. If your license does not have your physical Bethlehem address (not a PO Box), then please bring something that does show your address (utility bill, rent agreement, tax bill, etc.)
Start the process online
You can apply for a card online, through our card catalog. We will then mail the application to you to complete and sign. You return it to us with a photocopy of your ID.
