RPL Free Library Card!




Get immediate access to the library’s online services:

  • check out eBooks and eAudiobooks
  • access our online resources
  • place holds on library materials
  • access public computers and the Internet at all library locations

If you’re a resident of the City of Richmond and surrounding areas, 18 or older and have never had a Richmond Public Library card, you’re eligible for an eCard. (Under 18? You’re eligible too, but your parent or guardian should complete this application for you)

If you already have a physical Richmond Public Library card, you don’t need to sign up for an eCard! Your current card can be used for online services. Only one card of either type is permitted per individual.

To check out physical materials visit any Richmond Public Library to convert your eCard to a card with full borrowing privileges. Please bring a photo ID and proof of current address.
