Apply for a Library Card

Welcome to Wilton Library! If you live, work, or teach in Wilton, you are eligible to apply for a Wilton Library card. Your Wilton Library card will open up a world of information, entertainment, and educational resources. You may apply online using the links below, or visit our Circulation Desk to obtain your Wilton Library card.

Not a Wilton resident? You may register your Connecticut hometown library card with us to borrow materials from Wilton Library. Please bring your library card (with expiration date) and ID with you to our Circulation Desk and we will be happy to register your card with Wilton Library. Please note that you will only be able to borrow our physical materials (books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, puzzles) as the digital resources and remote access to research databases are restricted to Wilton Library cardholders only as per licensing agreements.

If you have any questions, please contact our Circulation Desk at 203-762-6334.
