Arlington Public Library

If you live in Arlington, Pantego or Mansfield; work or attend school at Arlington ISD, Mansfield ISD, or UTA; work for the City of Arlington; or volunteer eight hours a month, we offer free cards. Other options are available for those that still would like a library card.

Grand Prairie Library
You may apply online for an online access card, which will allow you to download ebooks, eaudiobooks, and use our digital resources. Full-access Grand Prairie Library cards may be obtained in person at any of our library branches. For customers ages 16 or older we must see a valid, government issued ID to issue a card; juvenile customers must have a parent fill out the card application. An online access card (which does not allow checkout of physical items) may be upgraded for free to a full access card at any Grand Prairie Library.
Kennedale Public Library

Anyone over the age of 18 can apply for a library card by filling out an application in person in the Kennedale Public Library. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian apply for a library card for themselves and then agree to sponsor the minor.

Mansfield Public Library
Anyone who can provide a current state or federal picture ID and proof of current address can get a free Mansfield Public Library card.
Get an Additional Library Card

It is possible for residents of other cities to obtain a library card for additional libraries. As an example, a resident of Mansfield can obtain an Arlington Public Library card. Doing so allows Mansfield residents to access any Arlington Public Library resource not available to Mansfield Public Library patrons.

To obtain an additional library card, follow the directions for the individual library you are interested in.
