The Richmond Public Library offers three regular types of library cards:

All library cards automatically expire every two years. Library cards can be renewed at the Circulation Desk or by calling 510-620-6559.

If you live in our service area and want to borrow online resources, you can sign up for an Instant Digital Card with OverDrive using your mobile number and borrow OverDrive/Libby titles.

Library cards offer you the ability to manage your account online, including placing holds, paying fines and fees, and managing lists.
