Your Library Card

You must have your own library card to check out materials from Mead Public Library, or to use public computer services and certain online services.

Apply for a library card:


  • Apply for your library card in person. Bring along a photo ID with your current address, if you have one. If not, please bring along a photo ID without a current address plus a bill or similar document that was mailed to you at your current address within the last 30 days. You will then be able to receive your card immediately with full borrowing privileges. Minors (under age 18) must have a parent or guardian present at the time of application in order to receive full borrowing privledges. 


To access your account (patron info) you need to provide your library card number (borrower ID) and your PIN/password (personal identification number). Unless you ask for a change, your PIN number/password is the last four digits of your phone number on file at Mead Public Library.

Report a lost or stolen card immediately. The library will code your account so no one can use that card. If you do not report the loss or theft of your library card in a timely way, you may be held responsible for charges incurred through unauthorized use of that card.

Your library card is valid for checking out items at all member libraries of the Monarch Library System (that includes all public libraries in Dodge, Ozaukee, Sheboygan and Washington counties). Please note that each library has different policies. Typically, the rules of the library where you check out materials apply in regard to card use, loan periods, renewals, late charges and other matters.
