Please read before submitting an application:
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 number expires after three months. You may go in any time after submitting the application to pick up your card and renew it for two more years. Doing so will require proof-of-residence within our service region.
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 call or email your local library branch.
This form is for residents of the Northwest Minnesota region only. Only residents within the area have access to the digital collections provided by this card. The region includes only the Minnesota counties of Kittson, Marshall, Pennington, Red Lake, and Roseau. 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.
