Getting a Library Card

The Gloucester County Library System (GCLS) issues library cards to residents of the 14 GCLS member communities who pay a dedicated county library tax. Residents of the following communities in Gloucester County qualify for access to GCLS library services with required proof of residency:

Clayton Greenwich
East Greenwich Harrison
Elk Logan
Mantua Swedesboro
National Park Newfield
South Harrison Woodbury Heights
Woolwich Glassboro

The Gloucester County Library System issues library cards in-person at any one of our branches located Glassboro, Greenwich, Logan, Mullica Hill, and Swedesboro. A photo ID and proof of residency must be presented in the form of any one of the following:

  • NJ Drivers License
  • NJ non-driver ID (issued by the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission)
  • Current municipal tax bill, utility bill, or bank statement showing individual's name and address, and a photo ID
  • Out-of-county owners of business or property located in a GCLS member community must show proof of business or property ownership, and a photo ID 

Expired or lost cards
GCLS cards are renewed every 2 years. Please don't throw away your old card! Renew your card by presenting it to circulation staff along with your current driver's license. Your card will be updated. There is a $1 fee to replace a lost library card. If you have forgotten your card, you may present your driver's license.

Non-resident cards
Out-of-County residents may purchase access to GCLS library services for an annual fee of $100 per year. A six month membership may be purchased for $50.

GCLS is a member of the LOGIN consortium and honors library cards issued by libraries located throughout Gloucester, Cumberland, and Salem counties.
