Short Answer: Library cards are free to all Kansas residents and property owners. Stop by the Circulation desk with your photo ID and proof of address. If you address is correct on your ID, then that’s all we need.
Requirements to obtain a library card:
Photo ID showing current address (driver’s license preferred)
If photo ID does not show current address, any printed material that shows current address is acceptable (printed checks, utility bill, cancelled envelope, etc.), along with the photo ID
Children may use their parents’ ID if they have no proof of current address.
An individual who owns property in Kansas but does not live here may show a property tax bill in order to be considered a resident.
An applicant who cannot prove current address may be issued a temporary library card and may check out up to two items. This limit will remain in place until valid proof of current address is provided.
A PSU student ID is considered proof of address and is treated as if cardholder is a Kansas resident. Cards issued to PSU students residing out of state will expire annually.
Barcode: Type in your 16-digit PPL card number (found on your library card).
Pin: Type in your four-digit PIN.
Please stop by or call the library at (620) 231-8110 to obtain your PIN. We can also reset it for you.
How can I reserve a meeting space at the library?
Please note: The Pittsburg Public Library is having the flooring replaced throughout the building. While this project is taking place, the library will not be scheduling meeting rooms. Please feel free to check back in May. Thanks for your understanding.
