What you can do with your library card?
Your library card allows you to check out books, movies, magazines and audiobooks, all for free in both print and digital formats. But that’s not all. You can also check out passes to state parks and other attractions, Launchpads, Chromebooks, tablets and even a telescope.
Get a Library Card
PINES Library Cards are free to all residents of Georgia. If you attend school, own property or work in Georgia, you are eligible for a free PINES card. Bring a government issued id showing your name and current address to get a card.
Parents or guardians of children under the age of 18 must accompany their child when applying for a Library Card. The parent must sign their child's application and present proper identification.
If your library card is lost or stolen, report it immediately to the library. There is no charge for a replacement card.
The eCard provides access to Hoopla, Libby, and Axis 360 as well as GALILEO. Bring in your government issued id to upgrade the card to a full library card that allows you to check out books and other materials.
