Your Library Card

Activate Your Library Account

Visit the circulation desk of any Atlantic Cape library. You'll need your college ID.

Id Card with library barcode

To borrow books, use reserve books, laptop computers or equipment in the library you will need to activate your library account. Your College ID becomes your library card, along with a PIN code that you will choose. Once your account is activated, you can borrow material from the Atlantic Cape Libraries, get material delivered from any of our partner libraries in the Atlantic County Library System, and much more.

You can also use your College ID to apply for a Community Account to borrow materials from Richard Stockton University, for a library card from the Atlantic City Free Public Library, and from the Atlantic County Library System and Cape May County libraries.
