Get a Library Card

Verona residents and anyone in the South Central Library System are eligible to receive a free Verona Public Library card with proof of address and a photo ID. If you are a Wisconsin resident, we can probably provide you with a library card; please ask! Your library card is good at any public library in Wisconsin (excluding Milwaukee County).

Your library card can be used to check out materials, request materials from other LINKcat libraries, download free electronic books & audiobooks using OverDrive, free online magazines using Flipster, and use free subscription databases.

To apply for your free library card, fill out an application and bring in in to our service desk.  Parents must sign the application for children under age 14.

Have a card already?  The Verona Public Library accepts scannable card images stored in smart phones. 

Lost cards can be replaced at no cost at the library. Please call (608) 845-7180 to report a lost or stolen library card.
