Getting a Library Card


Anyone who lives, works, owns property, or attends school in Red Bank (including students at Red Bank Regional High School) may register for a library card to borrow books and other items.  Application for a library card must be done in person.  Please bring a photo ID and proof of address, such as a recent utility bill, if your address is incorrect on the photo ID.  Library cards must be renewed every 3 years and current ID must be provided at that time.  Your Red Bank card can also be used at other member libraries in our consortium - find out more here:  LMxAC.

Children are encouraged to have their own library card, which they may apply for in the Children's Department.  Persons under the age of 18 must have their application signed by a parent or guardian and the parent or guardian must provide ID with proof of address. 

Non-residents may obtain a library card for an annual fee of $50.  Please note: some Middletown residents have a Red Bank postal address but pay taxes in Middletown.  They are not eligible for a resident card but are welcome to become non-resident borrowers for the above fee.
