How to Get A Library Card

You can now register for a library card online!

Go to All you need is your library card. You will need to enter the number on the back of your card including the special character at the end. You will not need to enter the spaces between the numbers. It will ask for your pin. If you cannot remember your pin, try the four digits of your birth year. If you need help, let us know!

If you would like to download the app, look for “Libby” in your mobile device store. You will need to look for Mid Arkansas Library System when it asks for your library’s name.
