Get a Library Card

Applying for a Library Card is simple and takes only minutes!

Any person residing, owning property, or employed in Shasta County is eligible for a Shasta Public Libraries card and, therefore, may borrow materials free of charge from the Redding, Anderson, and Burney Libraries. The privilege of obtaining a Library card will also be extended to individuals residing in any City and/or County of the State of California.

1. Fill out the online application.

This application asks for: legal name, street address, phone number, and e-mail (optional)

2. Write down the temporary barcode (PACREG with a series of numbers).

This temporary PACREG code acts as an eCard.

This code and your pin will give free access to the library’s electronic resources, including eBooks and eAudiobooks, while the library is closed.

You can visit your nearest Shasta Public Libraries branch with your ID and proof of address to convert this temporary card to a full-service card that will continue to give you access to eResources as well as books, DVDs and more!

*If you are already a Shasta Public Libraries cardholder, you do not need an eCard to use our electronic resources. Your current card allows access.
