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. 

  • The number on the back of your library card (with no spaces) and the PIN number you choose can be used to view your library account here.
  • If you’d like to log in to your library account and aren’t sure how to get started, click here to watch a video tutorial.
  • You can request print items (Books, movies, audiobooks, music CDs, etc.) through our online catalog for Curbside Pick-up. Click here to watch a quick video on how to get started.
  • Your library card number can be used to access downloadable materials like eBooks as well as online resources like the New York Times, Consumer Reports, language learning, and more!

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.
