Register for a temporary libray card online!

Use this form to register for a temporary borrower card at Marshall Public Library. Please note: temporary cards are only available to adult residents of the City of Marshall or the Marshall Area Public Library District. If you unsure if you fall within the library district, please call the library at 217-826-2535.

By submitting this form, you hereby agree to obey all rules and regulations of the public library, to pay promptly all fines charged against you for injury or loss of books, and to give immediate notice of any change of address.


Once the card is processed, staff will contact you with your library card number to allow you access to our digital resources.
Temporary cards will be valid for thirty days. 

If you’d like to transition your card to a regular patron card, please visit the library within thirty days. The physical card may be picked up at the circulation desk after the library reopens.  Please bring proof of I.D (driver's license or other government issued I.D.) when picking up your new card as well as proof of your current address.
