Library Cards





With COVID-19, we've made adjustments so you can have a Virtual Library card created, that will give you access to all of our eResources (eBooks, eAudio Books, Streaming Movies and Music, and More).  Please contact your local library if you have any questions.

A Traditional Library Card will give you access to all physical items in the library, in addition to all of our eResources (including eBooks, eAudiobooks, streaming movies, music, and more).

Where Do I Get a Library Card?
Visit the circulation desk at any Aurora Public Library locations.

What Documents Do I Need to Bring to Get a Card? 
Adults (ages 18 and over) must provide proof of Aurora residency and valid photo identification. Some examples of proof of residency include:

  • Bill (e.g. phone, utility) with your name and Aurora address on it
  • Receipt with your name and Aurora address on it
  • Payroll check stub with your name and Aurora address on it.
  • Personal checks printed with your name and Aurora address

The Aurora Public Library is a participant in Colorado Libraries Collaborate. If you do not live in the city of Aurora, an Aurora Library card number can still be issued to you. Just provide one of the above documents showing a valid Colorado address. A sticker with your Aurora Library barcode number can be placed on your home library agency’s card if you have one, or we can issue you an Aurora card.

Does It Cost Anything to Get a Card?
No. Card and the use of the library are free. Fines and fees apply to overdue and lost materials.

Can Kids Get Library Cards?
Yes. Children (under age 18) may receive a card when accompanied by a parent or guardian who meets the above criteria (listed under “What Documents Do I Need to Bring to Get a Card?). Please keep in mind that the card holder or guardian is responsible for all lost, damaged, and overdue items.

What If I Lose My Card?
If your card is lost or stolen, or if your address changes, you MUST notify the library immediately by calling 303.739.6600. Replacement cost for a lost card is $2. You are responsible for items checked out on your account.

What Can I Do With My Library Card?
Check out books, CDs, DVDs or audiobooks from Aurora and most other Colorado libraries.
Access research databases through the Aurora Public Library.
Use public computers at any Aurora Public Library.
Manage your library account online (place holds, see your reading history, pay fines and more).

 

If you are unable to visit the library due to COVID-19, you can still have access to our eResources (eBooks, eAudiobooks, streaming movies, music, and more) with a Virtual Library Card.  Should you want to check out books or DVDs you'll need to have a Traditional Library Card.
