Library Cards & Lending Guidelines

Library Cards and Lending Guidelines

Getting a TCPL card is easy and FREE! You can register at the Library or online. When you complete the online application, you will receive a temporary card number you can use to place holds. The next time you visit the library, bring your photo ID and we will issue your library card.

All TCPL items can be returned to any of the 33 Finger Lakes Library System member libraries.

Please see TCPL's Card and Lending Guidelines for more information about borrowing.
