Request a Library Card:
Community members can now request an East Central Regional Library card from home. This new online application process is very similar to getting a card in our branches. We ask that you click the link below. This will take you to a page in our Online Catalog. From here you will need to enter the following required information: your name, address, date of birth, phone number and e-mail address. After you submit your request, we will process your application within one business day and get back to you via e-mail with your barcode number and the PIN will be the last 4 digits of the phone number you entered.
****If you’ve previous had a library card and/or need your PIN reset, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, date of birth, phone number and e-mail address. Then we can confirm your account and send you your barcode number.****
Please know that library cards are available to any resident of East Central Regional Library’s counties (Aitkin, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine).
Use your card to access our digital library that offers eBooks,eAudiobooks and eMagazines that you can access right from your home.
*We will mail physical cards to all who sign up when normal operations resume.

My library card will be expiring in July. Can I renew it when I use curbside pickup?
Hi Diane, I sent you a quick e-mail about the process.
I had a library card years ago but have not used it in years. I have since lost the card.
What should my next step be?
We will check to see if you are still in the system and follow-up via email with appropriate next steps, depending on our findings.
