How do I sign up for a library card or an e-resource?

Stop by the library to sign up for a library card. If you signed up for an e-card or started the library card registration process online, stop by the library to convert your e-card into a library card to check out physical items. Please see our Policies page for more information.

The links to the e-resources above provide instructions on signing up. Some of the e-resources require a PIN. If you do not have a PIN or do not remember your PIN, set it up online through your CountyCat account or stop by the library.

If you have any questions, please call us at (414) 768-8195 or email us at SMPL.ref@mcfls.org
