How to Sign up for a Library Card

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

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.

Alternately, you can sign up for a temporary digital card online, then follow up by sending us a photo of your ID (or by bringing it in in person.) Once we have seen your ID, we will issue you a permanent card.

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.

Our Mission

The mission of the Pine Plains Free Library is to provide resources, programs, and services that facilitate life-long learning, community engagement, and public awareness of local information.
