September is Library Card Sign-up Month
West Springfield Public Library Card Registration
Any Massachusetts resident age 5 and older may apply for a West Springfield Public Library card. As a member of C/W Mars, West Springfield Public Library accepts all other member library cards for borrowing purposes. Therefore, you would not need a library card specifically for WSPL if you already have a card from another local library. Applicants for library cards must show proof of address and complete the card application. Patrons may borrow up to three items the day of applying. The library card is then mailed to the patron and may be used at other area C/W Mars libraries.
You can begin the process online!
This process is for new cards only – if you need to renew an existing card, please call us at 413-736-4561 x 0. If you’re not sure if you have a CW MARS (Central Western Massachusetts Resource Sharing) card already, ask us!
Before you apply, please read about our library card policies.
After you apply for a library card online, you will receive a letter in the mail confirming the process or a phone call if there are any questions. In order to complete the library card registration process, please come into the library and verify your current address with a valid ID. If your valid ID does not show your current address, please bring in a copy of a current utility bill and the confirmation letter.
Suggested forms of ID:
- Drivers License
- Valid sate ID with picture
- Student ID
- Work ID
- If the above are not available, patrons may provide proof of address such as:
- Recently received piece of mail with the current address
- Personal checks with the printed current address
- Positive idenification for children can be provided by a parent or guardian, a YMCA ID, a bus pass, or other local forms of positive ID
