Any resident of California can receive a Riverside County Library System (RCLS) card. Apply for a card at any RCLS library branch, including our mobile resource vans.
To get a card, you will need to show either a valid California Driver License with a current address, or two forms of identification, one showing who you are and the other indicating your current mailing address in California. Parents or legal guardians must sign for children’s cards. Non-residents of California can obtain a library card for a $10 annual fee.
eCards: This virtual card will give you free access to the library’s digital collections, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and much more. Click the button below to register. You will immediately receive your eCard number by email. You will then be ready to use many of our Digital Resources. (Note: Requesting and borrowing physical materials, including park passes, requires a full-access card. eCards can be upgraded to full-access cards at any RCLS library branch.)
Full-Access Cards: Visit your nearest RCLS library branch with your ID and proof of address to convert your eCard to a full service card, giving you access to books, DVDs, and more! Click Here for more information about RCLS library cards.

Adult Literacy Program: We have exciting programs to help adults who want to improve their reading, writing, and communication skills. These programs are completely FREE and can help you reach your goals, such as finding a job, supporting your family, or becoming a citizen. We also offer English as a Second Language (ESL) services to help you learn English. The Riverside County Library System Adult Literacy Program provides adult literacy services to our communities through one-on-one literacy tutoring, classes, and family literacy events.
Veterans Resource Center: The Riverside County Library System has received a Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) Grant to establish a Veterans Resource Center, a resource dedicated to helping veterans and their families.
Digital Library eLearning: The Riverside County Library System, in partnership with the California State Library and Gale, part of the Cengage Learning, offers adults the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate online through Digital Library eLearning.
Volunteering: Volunteers make generous contributions to the Riverside County Library System. Without their enthusiasm, hard work, and commitment, many library services would not be possible. Your time, talents, and energy are valued here at the Library. Volunteer opportunities may include:
