Can I sign up for a card virtually even though I live out of state?


Library cards are free for all Orleans Parish residents as well as those who currently have a valid library card from Jefferson and St. Bernard parishes. However, you can sign up online for a non-resident card for cost of $50 annually even if you are not eligible for a free Library card. You can learn more about signing up for a Library card here: New to the Library 

If you would like to sign up for a non-resident card with a $50 fee, please click Submit a Question to contact us.
