Greenwood County Library Card Campaign

How to Register Your Child for a Greenwood County Library Card Online

1. Click on the link below and fill out the application.

The application will ask for information from the parent as well, including their SC Driver's License/ID Card #.
You will also have to select which branch of the Greenwood County Library System you wish to pick up your child's card at. The Library will not mail out children's cards.

2. Once your child's application has been processed (Between 2-3 business days) a Librarian will call you to let you know you can pick up your child's card. We will give you the card number to access online resources until you can pick up your child's card in person. You must pick up the card to check out the physical materials. *Please bring your SC Driver's License or ID when picking up your child's card!

If you do not receive a call from a Librarian within 2-3 business days, contact Jessica at (864) 941-3033 for technical support.

Why Should You Get Your Child a Library Card?
  1. It's FREE! Your child can check out 25 items on a card. 25 books can get a bit expensive! Encourage your child to make their own reading choices and find new authors and subjects to read without breaking the budget.
  2. A library card of their own gives children a sense of privilege and responsibility. Checking out a book on their own card that they picked out themselves can be a powerful moment in your child's life.
  3. We have computers just for kids in the Children's Room! Do homework or play educational games with your library card!
  4. The Library card goes beyond the building. Access our online resources. There are eBooks and eAudiobooks for young readers through Overdrive and Hoopla, online magazines through Flipster, and even music you can download through Freegal. Visit our Digital Library page to find more. Don't forget to check out Tumblebooks for Read Alongs, storybooks, eBooks, and more!
