Your Luzerne County Library Card may be used to borrow materials at the Osterhout Free Library, any of our branch libraries, or other public libraries which are members of the Luzerne County Library System. If you live in Luzerne County, you qualify for a free library card. You may visit the Osterhout to fill out a registration form, or you may print out a registration form from the link above and bring it with you to the Central Library or any of our branches. You will be asked to show proof of residence. Once the required identification is presented, you will be issued a library card. You will be able to use your card immediately.

Persons Living Outside Luzerne County
Anyone who lives outside Luzerne County, but inside Pennsylvania, can get a free library card if he/she can present a current library card from another library in Pennsylvania with the blue “Access Pennsylvania” sticker on it. If this card does not contain the person’s address, then some form of identification such as a driver’s license must also be presented to verify the address given. The card is valid for 1 year.
Anyone who lives outside Luzerne County, but inside Pennsylvania, who does not have an Access Pennsylvania library card, can purchase a library card for a $25.00 fee. This card is valid for 1 year.
No material may be checked out without a library card.
