Once the library reopens, visit any Corvallis-Benton County Public Library branch (bring ID and proof of address) and  convert your E-Card to a physical library card.

If you already have a physical CBCPL library card, you most likely have access to online resources as well. Please contact us with questions or to renew your card.

All-Access Cards

The Library district includes most of Benton County. (Residents living within the city limits of Albany are not eligible). Others may purchase a card for $120.

Students that are fifth grade and under need to have a parent or guardian’s signature.

If you apply for a Library E-Card online, the temporary card must be converted to a permanent card at any Library branch within 90 days or it will expire. Please note that the card may not work with all of our online databases.

Your Library card and PIN will allow you to access your Library account online via My Account.
