    Is there a site to apply for a library card online, or is it needed that we come in? My card is so old, it probably isn’t in the system any longer 🙁


  2. LeeAnn Says:

    Also, does all of this computer technology happen in one night???

  3. Sheri Says:

    Hi LeeAnn,

    Give us a call at 616-784-2007 and we can check if your library card is still in the system. If it isn’t, you can fill out a registration form for a new card online at and then just stop by your local branch to pick it up.

    The computer classes take place at various times and locations. You can view a complete fall schedule at, or call our Patron Services Department at 616-784-2007 for assistance.
