Library Cards

Patrons must present an active Old Colony Library Network (OCLN) card to borrow library materials. Individuals residing in OCLN member towns may register at their home library or at any other OCLN member library. All patrons must provide proper identification which includes a current legal home address. Children under 18 must be able to print their first and last names and have a parent or legal guardian present to sign the registration form. Your library card provides access to all materials in the Library without age restrictions. It is the responsibility of parents or legal guardians to supervise the material selection of children.
