Get A Library Card

Become a card member at Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library!

Are you a resident of Guilford township? If you are, then the staff at Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library invites you to register for a library card – in person or remotely! A library card is so much more than your ticket to new books and movies. At our library, you’ll find ways to use your imagination like never before. We’ll provide you with opportunities to create amazing things at our events and programs and even give you the tools to connect to the world in new ways.

How To Get A Card

Getting your PGTPL card couldn’t be easier! We want every member of our community to have access to our great materials and resources. We now offer two ways to get a library card!

To get a card in person, simply bring your driver’s license or other government issued photo ID and proof of your residence, like a current utility bill to the library, and our staff will be more than happy to assist you!

If you’re unable to come in, we can issue a digital library card! Simply fill out this form. You will recieve an email with your card number and 4 digit PIN within 24 hours.

Once you receive your card number, you will have access to a wide range of digital resources, like eBooks, eAudiobooks, downloadable and streaming music, online magazines and newspapers, databases, language learning, teaching resources, how-to arts and crafts videos, and more! Follow us on social media for digital collection highlights and information on other free educational resources that are available at this time.

Finally, if you live in an area not served by a public library, you can purchase a non-resident card. If you live in a township served by another public library, you can purchase a PLAC (Public Library Access Card). Both of these cards may be purchased at the Main Desk.

  • Books
  • Movies
  • Board games
