Get a Library CardTo sign up for a Mansfield Public Library card you need to be a resident of Mansfield/Storrs. If you are a resident of another town, you are welcome to check out our materials, but you must get a library card from your hometown. UConn students who live on campus are also eligible to sign up for a card, which can be renewed every semester they live on campus.
Library cards are free to sign up for! To get a card, please come to the library with a valid photo identification and proof of residency (such as a lease or a piece of mail). Please note that if your driver’s license has your Mansfield/Storrs address, you do not need to bring a second proof of residency.
Under 16? You are welcome to sign up for a card, but you will need a parent or guardian to come with you.
