Library Cards

What Do I Bring?

To receive or renew a Brigham City Library card, please visit the library at least 30 minutes before closing time with the following:

  • Photo ID
  • Proof of address (addressed to card signer & dated within last 30 days)
  • Adult/Guardian signer (if under 18)
  • Additional documents (if necessary to prove membership category)
  • Payment (if required by membership category)

Proof of address can include mail, digital statements, bills, etc. Applications for children under 18 require a legal parent/guardian to provide the photo ID and proof of address. If you are homebound and cannot visit in person, please contact the library. We do not offer digital applications at this time. 

Membership Categories

The Library is primarily funded by Brigham City property taxes. Individuals living or renting in Brigham City—or otherwise paying Brigham City property taxes—are eligible for library cards at no additional cost. The Library's Board of Trustees have also approved some no-fee non-resident membership categories, as indicated below.

Membership Categories

  • Brigham City residents
  • Brigham City property renters (living elsewhere)*
  • Brigham City property owners (living elsewhere)*
  • Brigham City Corporation employees*
  • Students attending a Brigham City school in the Box Elder County School District*
  • Employees working in a Brigham City school in the Box Elder County School District*
  • Weber County residents

All others may receive a library card by paying a non-resident fee.

* Requires some form of additional documentation showing category eligibility (e.g. Brigham property tax statement; City employee badge; proof of BESD enrollment; etc.)

Non-Resident Fees

Individuals who do not fall into any of the membership categories listed above may purchase library membership. A non-resident membership payment covers all individuals in a household. Year-length memberships are the best value ($5/month) and are cheaper than many subscription and streaming services.

  • $60 / 1 year
  • $35 / 6 months
  • $20 / 3 months

Library services are also available to county residents through the Box Elder County Bookmobile.

Lost Cards

If your library card or keychain is lost or stolen, please contact the library. Staff can put a note on your account to prevent others from using your physical card without your permission.

If your card is...

  • Lost but not expired → Bring photo ID and a $2 replacement fee.**
  • Lost and expired → Bring any documents required to renew your card and a $2 replacement fee.**

**Note: If your current library barcode begins with a "P" you are eligible for a card upgrade without paying the replacement fee.

What's my password/PIN?
The 4-digit PIN written inside your Welcome brochure.

A reset link will be sent to whatever email address is on file with the library. You can also visit the library with a photo ID to have the staff reset your PIN.

If your account is at collections, payments must be made to the collection agency. Contact the library for more information.
Why do I pay a Non-Resident fee?
The Library is funded by Brigham City property taxes. Households and individuals who rent or own property in Brigham City are supporting the library through their taxes, and may obtain a library card without additional charge.

Select policies allow other groups to obtain cards at no additional cost:
>> Residents of Weber County
>> Brigham City Corporation employees
>> Students and employees in a Brigham City public school

Individuals who do not rent or own property in Brigham City, and who do not fall under any of the additional policies, may pay a fee for library privileges. This fee covers all individuals in the household.
How many books can I check out?
It varies
Checkout limits vary depending on your age group and card type. Generally, adults can have up to 25 items and children up to 15. Student cards are limited to 5 items. Digital checkouts are capped at 15, regardless of card type.

Checkouts may also be limited by item type (i.e. 1 tablet per card, etc.)
