Library Card

Attention North Carolina residents! Now you can sign up for a library card at the Government & Heritage Library, part of the State Library of North Carolina. To get your library card, sign up here and email the form to slnc.reference@ncdcr.gov.

What can you do?

  • If you are a North Carolina resident or a state agency employee, you can apply for a library card and borrow items from our circulating collection. If your library is a member of the NC Cardinal Consortium, you may place a hold on circulating materials and they will be sent to your library.
  • State Library card holders can access many databases off site. GHL subscribes to many different databases. Check our website to determine access availability. Some databases are only available on site.

How it works:

  • Fill out a library card application and email it to us or bring it in. You will need to present a state issued identification card to complete your registration and receive your library card.
