Library Card

Library facilities and resources are available to the public and everyone is entitled and encouraged to use them. However, to borrow materials or use electronic resources, a valid library card is required.


If you are a resident of Hatboro or if you work in the borough, you are eligible for a Hatboro Library card. You can join the library by visiting the circulation desk and completing a registration form.

The library requires identification that includes your name and street address. New residents can bring a lease, recent utility bill, etc. Post Office box addresses are not valid as proof of residency.


For youth under the age of 14 to receive a library card, a parent or guardian must sign the application form attesting to the validity of the information and accepting responsibility for materials borrowed on the card. If a parent or guardian is not present, the library card application may be taken home for completion and signature.

Non-Hatboro Residents

If you are a Pennsylvania resident living outside of Hatboro and you have a card from your local Access Pennsylvania Library, you may use that card at the Union Library. Please bring a photo ID, proof of current address and your library card from your home library. We will add your information into our system and you will then have access to all that our library has to offer.
