You need to have official identification showing your name and permanent address. We won't make copies of it, but we do need to see the following:
If you are under 18 years of age and are not an emancipated minor, you must have the signature of your parent or guardian on the application cards in order to be issued a card. If your parent or guardian is not a current ROPL library card holder, they must show the same proofs of residency listed above.
You can get a jump-start on the process with our online application here: https://www.romi.gov/FormCenter/Library-6/Library-Card-Registration-Form-48 and then bring your proof of address when you stop by to get your card.
You may use your card at any of the 50 libraries in the TLN network: https://tln.lib.mi.us/md. There are also some "standalone" libraries where you can use your card: Baldwin, Bloomfield Township, Canton, Clarkston, Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Grosse Pointe, Howell Carnegie, Northfield Township, Orion Township, Pinckney, Plymouth, Rochester Hills, Royal Oak Township, St. Clair County Library, Saline, Southfield, West Bloomfield Township, Westland, and Ypsilanti. We have a reciprocal borrowing agreement with Troy Public Library as well. But wait, there's more! If you ask for a MI Library Card sticker for your card, you have access to even more libraries in Michigan: http://milibrarycard.org/partcipating.html. Please call or visit any of these libraries if you are interested in utilizing these great resources.
You may have up to 100 items checked out at any time.
You may have up to 15 unfilled holds on your account. Any holds that are waiting for you on the shelf do not count towards your limit of 15. Also, your holds will stay on the shelf for seven (7) days, so make sure you get them before they're gone!
