To enjoy full use of your Fort Worth Library card you must visit any Fort Worth Library branch in person and bring ID and proof of residency or property ownership to complete the registration process. Information about acceptable forms of ID is here:

Fort Worth residents and property owners are eligible for a free Fort Worth Library card. Non-residents can purchase cards. Please contact the Library for details about non-resident cards.

Your Fort Worth resident/property owner card allows you to check out most books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines from any MetrOPAC library (Benbrook, Burleson, Fort Worth, Haltom City, Keller, Richland Hills, Watauga). Non-resident cardholders only have privileges at Fort Worth Library. Use of Fort Worth Library’s electronic resources is restricted to Fort Worth resident/property owner cardholders.

Fort Worth Library cannot complete the registration process or issue cards for residents of other MetrOPAC cities. To determine if you are a Fort Worth resident, go to and do a property data search. Fort Worth residents will have City of Fort Worth listed as a taxing jurisdiction.

Except under court order, the Library will not release information about your account to anyone but yourself and others authorized by you. If you would like to allow someone else to have access to information regarding your account please indicate those names on the registration form.
