eCard Application

Note: New York State residents have the option of requesting an eCard, which gives access to our ebooks, audiobooks, online databases, and printing services. Apply by completing the form below. You may also apply in-person at any one of our open branch locations for a full-access library card.

As of July 15, 2022, Brooklyn Public Library is no longer offering its fee-based out-of-state library card. Our priority remains serving Brooklynites and assuring that they can access the materials they need in a timely manner. BPL Library cards remain free for anyone who lives, works, pays property taxes or attends school in New York State. Existing out-of-state accounts will remain active until their expiration date and will not be renewable.

Teens and young adults ages 13-21 outside of New York State can apply for a free Booked UnBanned ecard. This card provides access to BPL’s entire digital collection and helps connect young people facing censorship and book bans in their communities with materials that explore a wider range of topics. You can support the Books Unbanned initiative by making a donation.


Please enter a 4 digit numeric PIN. This PIN will be required to access BPL resources.
