Digital Access Card

Applying for a Digital Access Library Card

Any Texas resident can get a Digital Access card. No proof of residence is needed, but you will need to physically present a photo ID. You can only have one type of card:

  1.  Full Service Library card that allows access to everything the Library has, or
  2. A Digital Access Library card that gives you access to all our digital resources

You can upgrade your Digital Access Library card to a Full Service Library card at any time. To upgrade, parents or guardians must sign and accept financial responsibility for children under 18 years of age and provide photo ID and current proof of residence.


If you lose your library card or if it is stolen, notify the library immediately.  Once notified, we will block the card so that it can no longer be used.  You remain responsible for all use made of your lost/stolen card prior to reporting it to the library. There is a $1.00 replacement fee for lost cards.

Library cards expire 24 months from the date of issue so that the library may update patron information upon renewal. Identification and proof of residence must be presented at renewal.  DO NOT throw the card away as it is simply updated on the computer—the card itself is reused.


You must have your library card in hand to check out materials, access computers, or access your record. You have access to the following with your digital access library card:

  • Downloadable e-books and e-audiobooks through OverDrive and cloudLibrary
  • Streaming video through Kanopy
  • Online newspapers through America’s News  
  • Live online tutoring via Brainfuse 
  • Language learning via Rocket Languages
