    Click Here to ApplyDauphin, Perry, and Cumberland County residents who reside in an Access PA served area can apply for a DCLS library card by registering online below or by bringing approved identification to the nearest Dauphin County Library. The Dauphin County Library System will issue cards to residents from birth up to age 17 with parental permission and approved parental/guardian identification.

    Non Dauphin County residents should check their local library card for the blue Access PA sticker. This designates your local library as a participant in the Access PA program. Bring your local card with the sticker to any DCLS library to obtain a DCLS card.

    Individuals who do not live in an Access PA served area will be charged a yearly fee of $60 to use the library services. Please click here to see if you live in an area that does not participate in the Access PA program.
