Library Cards

We offer a variety of membership options:

Residents of Old Orchard Beach, any child enrolled in the school system and any teacher teaching in the Old Orchard Beach schools are eligible for a free membership. When coming in to get a library card please bring a photo id and proof of residency (i.e.: phone bill, electric bill, or some other form of legal proof of residency). If your driver’s license has your Old Orchard Beach address on it that’s all that’s needed. Please call the library if you have any questions about what might work as proof of residency if you don’t have a driver’s license with your Old Orchard Beach address.
