The Library offers a wide variety of print materials, eBooks, audiobooks, public access computers, online resources, educational DVDs, live homework help for grades 4-12, summer reading programs, story times, author events and more.
If you have a virtual card (starting with "PACREG") you will not be able to check out materials via curbside. If you want to use curbside you must have your virtual card converted. Please call 301-699-3500 and ask for Public Services or contact us here.
The staff members at the check out desk of your local library can update the contact information on your library card record. You can also use the "Message to Staff" option when accessing your account from the Catalog to inform us of any changes to your account.
Library cards expire every three years. To renew your library card, you must visit a branch with photo ID so that staff can verify your address and update the information in your record. This renews the card for another three years.
If any copy of your card is lost or stolen, please report it immediately to a branch of the Prince George's County Memorial Library System. You are responsible for all items borrowed up until the time you report your card lost or stolen. To report your card lost, call or visit any branch library.
You can replace your lost library card for free at any branch library with proper identification (Photo ID and Proof of Address).
Customers who are unable to provide full information on our application may register for a computer access card by giving only their name, zip code and date of birth. With this card, customers will be able to use our public computers but will not have borrowing privileges. For full borrowing privileges further information will be required, such as proof of residency and a photo ID.
