Library Card Application

InformationIf you don’t remember the PIN for an existing PPLD account, please don’t apply for a new card. Click on "My Account" and then "Forgot My PIN." This option requires a valid email address in your PPLD account.

Print an Application

Print a library card application (en español), fill it out, and bring it to your local library.


Apply Online

Completion of the online application only allows you to access OverDrive eMaterials. The online application will require verification of regional address in person at a PPLD library within 10 days. At that point, you will have full privileges. Please inform the library staff that you registered online. You will need to show a photo ID and proof of address.

The online application will ask you to select a preferred library. That selection does not prevent you from using any of the libraries to pick up holds or check out items. View a map of library locations here.

Click here to proceed with the application.


Hello, I live in Pueblo but would like to access your on line library to give myself more reading options, is that possible?

Yes, you can get an out-of-district library card and you will have access to some PPLD services, including CyberShelf. You can apply for a temporary card online. Before your temporary card expires in 10 days, please visit any Pikes Peak Library District location and show a picture ID and proof of current address. You will then receive your permanent library card. If you set up an Overdrive account with your temporary card, to access ebooks online, be sure to let us know when you come in to get your permanent card. Happy reading!

I need my new email address to be changed to the above. Please let me know if this has been done? Thank you.

To update your email, phone, or street address, please call (719) 389-8968 and provide your library card number and PIN.

What can you use for verification of address? We just moved, so my I.D. still has my old address on it.

To get a PPLD library card, we will want a photo ID and something with your new address, such as rent agreement, insurance or bank statement, utility bill or other bill, voter registration, mortgage, etc. Welcome to Colorado Springs!
