Don't have a library card?

If you never have had a MCPL or V-Cat library card, apply for a card online or at any MCPL location. If you think you may have an account, but your card is lost or deactivated, contact us. Please do not re-apply.

Can't log in?

You may need to renew your card. Library cards automatically expire every three years. Otherwise, your account may be blocked due to excessive fines or other issues. Contact us to renew or check the status of your library account.
