NOTE: If you don't have a library card and would like to get one while our libraries are closed because of the coronavirus, please apply for our eCard, or contact us about getting one of our other cards (see descriptions on this page) or if you have questions.

If you want complete access to all library resources (physical and digital), you'll need an Everything Card.

If you don't already have a card, and you want instant access to all our digital resources including eBooks, apply online for the FVRL eCard.

We also offer these cards:

  • Educator Card: For preK-12 teachers who work in a school in the FVRL district, or homeschool teachers in the FVRL district
  • Limited Card: For district residents without proof of address or without a parental signature (for minors)
  • Reciprocal Card: For residents of areas with which we have a reciprocal agreement
  • Non-Resident Card (fee-based): For Washington residents or district visitors who don't qualify for one of our free cards
  • Does your child have FVRL digital access through their school? Find out more about our Connect Card.
