Library Card Applications
Whether you're looking to register for a new library card or renew an existing one, we are happy to have you as a patron.
If you are a card member of another public library in central or western Massachusetts (in the CW MARS library network), you can use it at the Shrewsbury Public Library — no need to get a new card. If not, you may apply for a card with us in person or by using the new library card application link below, but you will not be able to use some of our online resources if you are not a Shrewsbury resident (it is recommended that you apply for a library card in the town in which you reside).
Patrons who live or work in Massachusetts may obtain a library card for free; out-of-state residents may obtain a library card for a $10.00 annual fee.

New Patrons: Please Visit Us to Complete your Registration
After submitting your new library card application form, please come to the library during our open hours to show ID/proof of address and pick up your card at the Circulation Desk on the main floor.
We look forward to welcoming you to our library!
