Getting a library card is easy and convenient! Simply visit our library and present your photo ID and proof of address. You will get your card the same day with instant access to books, eBooks, audiobooks, movies, music and more. 

Can't wait to start using the library? You may qualify for our eCARD if you are 18 or over and reside within the city limits of Burleson. eCARDs have full borrowing privileges and give you instant access to our digital library. You may need to come in to the library if we are unable to verify your residency.
