Become a Lewistown Public Library Patron by Kari Denison

Are you new to the area and curious about the process to get a library card at the Lewistown Public Library?  Perhaps you are an established resident interested in library services?  The benefits to having a library card are great.  A card holder has access to checkout (borrow) books and media from the library collection, utilize virtual services, research, and attend programming.  

Lewistown and Fergus County residents are eligible for a free library card at the Lewistown Public Library.  The process to obtain a library card is quick and easy.  To apply for a library card, bring proof of current residence in Lewistown or Fergus County and a photo identification card to the front desk at the Library. 

At the front desk, a librarian will ask for proof of current residence and photo identification to apply for a card.  The applicant will complete a brief contact information card, then receive a physical library card as well as library services information.  Library staff is happy to give new patrons a tour of the building and assist with questions.

The new card holder can checkout physical library items or access the virtual collection immediately. The physical library collection offers laptops, Wi-Fi hotspots for students, books, audiobooks, movies for all ages and reference.  Our virtual collection can be accessed easily from the library website at  Look for the MTLIB2GO logo, click and access online fiction and non-fiction eBooks and audiobooks, and magazines. 

Temporary library cards are also available for a small charge for those who are not residents of Lewistown or Fergus County.  More information about temporary library cards can be found on the website at
