How do I get an AHPL library card?
Anyone who lives, works, or goes to school in Auburn Hills can get an AHPL library card at our Circulation Desk!
Auburn Hills residents will be asked for proof of identification (driver’s license, passport, school ID) and current residency (voter registration, current utility bill, etc). If you work in Auburn Hills, you will be asked to provide proof of identification and proof of your employment within Auburn Hills. If you go to school in Auburn Hills, you will need to show proof of identification and proof of your school enrollment.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany minor children that are applying for a library card. An Information Release Form is now available to parents/legal guardians of minor children. With this signed release on file, we will be able to release information about the child’s library record to the parent/legal guardian. The staff at the Circulation Desk will be happy to help you with the release form.
