A Monessen library card allows you to do more than simply borrow books and other materials.

Do I need a library card to use the collections of Monessen Public  Library?

You will need a card only if you wish to borrow materials from the library or use the online databases on this website from outside the Library. You do not need a card for onsite use at the library.

How much does a library card cost?

All Westmoreland County residents may obtain a free library card by presenting valid identification showing name and current address.
A parent or legal guardian’s signature is required for children under the age 16. 

How do I get a library card?

You must appear in person at the library to receive a library card. If you are under the age of 16, a parent or legal guardian (sorry, we can’t allow non-legal guardians such as babysitters, Grandma or Uncle Steve!). You must present a form of identification that has your current address on it (such as a valid driver’s license, a piece of mail with the current address printed on it, a valid passport). 

How can I get a nonresident library card?

Non-county residents must present a valid card from an ACCESS Pennsylvania library to receive a free card from Monessen PL.

What should I do if I lose my library card?

If you lose your card or have a change in address, please call the library as soon as possible. Replacement cards cost $3.00.
