library card

A valid library card is your passport to borrowing books, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs, and more! You will need your library card number to access our online databases and resources through the library. Library cards are also necessary to access our computers.

Don’t have a card? Bring a photo ID and proof of Marlborough residency (your license covers both if it has your current address, otherwise bring a piece of mail or bill with your name and address dated within the last 30 days) and we will be happy to issue you one. If you live in another town, you must go to your local library in the town in which you reside to get a card, which can then be used at the Richmond Memorial Library.

Library cards are renewed every 3 years. In order to renew your card, you must appear in person to confirm that your personal information is up-to-date. You are responsible for all items checked out on your card. If you lose your card, please notify the library. Your first card is free, but lost cards are $5.00 to replace.

Temporary Registration

Temporary registration will allow you to request library materials and access some online resources until you can stop by the library to obtain your library card. Please bring in a photo ID and proof of current Marlborough address within 30 days to complete the process of securing a permanent library card, renewable every 3 years.

Please click here to access the online registration form. Once you submit your online registration form, please allow up to 3 days for staff to process your request. We will contact you with your temporary library card number.
