Due to our limited service during the COVID-19 pandemic we are temporarily allowing patrons to sign up for a library card online. These will allow you to access our digital collections on Overdrive and Hoopla. After three months we’ll contact you and ask you to bring proof-of-residence to the library. We’ll renew your account for you and give you your physical library card.
To apply for a card, complete the form below. A staff member will review your application and if eligible, a library card number will be sent to your email address.
This form is for new patrons only. If you already have a library card for NWRL, please do not fill out this form. If there is an issue with your current library card, please email your local library branch.
This form is for residents of the Northwest Minnesota region only. Only residents within the area have access to our digital collections. Patrons outside of the region looking to sign up for a reciprocal card will need to do so in person.
If you get a spinning circle after submission without getting a confirmation you are safe to close out of the form. Your entry has been submitted, though it may not seem like it.
