Get a Marshalltown Public Library Card


We are now offering people the opportunity to sign up for a library card online. Nearly all residents of the state of Iowa are eligible to apply for a library card from the Marshalltown Public Library. In order to verify your mailing address, we will mail you your card. Please keep in mind that we can only use residential addresses for digital cards, not business addresses or post office boxes. 

Some digital materials, including all streaming video and downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks, as well as our Adventure Pass program, are only available to residents of Marshalltown, rural Marshall County, Haverhill, and Ferguson.
