Sign up for a "Quarantine Card" for access
Temporary Library Card - Good until 1/01/21
During the building closure, residents who do not have a library card cannot access digital resources via our Reference Databases page. If you don't have a library card, don't worry! You can now sign up for a limited edition "Quarantine Card" online by filling out this form.
Please do not fill out the form if you have an existing library card card account. Q-Cards will expire on January 1, 2021. For continued access, patrons will need to come to the library when the building reopens to verify their address information. Upon successful completion of the form, cards will be mailed directly to patrons at home. Questions? E-mail Library Director Ryan Donovan.
Get a Library Card
Any person who lives, works, attends school, or pays property taxes in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is eligible to receive a library card free of charge.
To get your library card, please bring in a photo identification and proof of your current residence, such as:
- a valid driver’s license or non-driver's identification with your current address printed on the front
- a photo ID (e.g., a passport or school identification) with a piece of recent, registered mail or other valid proofs of address
Your library card is free. The Southborough Library also offers free replacement cards.
Southborough Library cards are valid at all consortium libraries in the Central/Western Massachusetts region (C/WMARS).
The default PIN number for patrons is the last 4-digits of the phone number that you registered with.
