How to Sign up for a Library Card

To borrow items from the Pine Plains Free Library, you must have a card from the Mid-Hudson Library System and not owe $10 or more in fines.

Cards from other libraries in the Mid-Hudson Library System (e.g. Red Hook, Poughkeepsie, Mahopac, Hudson, etc.) can be used at the Pine Plains Free Library.

If you are a new patron and don’t have a card from another local library, come visit us any time we’re open and fill out a card application. It only takes a minute! Bring your license or other photo ID with you.

Children of any age can be issued their own card, but any patron under 18 needs a parent or guardian’s signature on the card application.

You do not need a card to use our computers, printers, or WiFi, to come to library programs, or to use the library space.
