If you want to check out books, movies, and more, you'll need a BPL library card. Teens 13 and older can apply for their own card - all you need is a school ID, a report card (don't worry we won't look at your grades), or working papers. Find out how to get one here . Lose your card? Is yours expired? Get all the info you need with our Library Card Help Page.
