Kick Start School Success with a Library Card

Help your student succeed in school with access to learning resources from Canton Public Library. Why should you get your student their own card? Many of our resources have a check out limit per account, so you may max out your checkouts on some items if you use a family card. Also, registration for CPL programs is often age specific, and that is tied to your library card account, so if you'd like your student to register for a STEAM program, or storytime, they will need their own card.

Many students receive a library card when they visit the Canton Public Library for First Grade Round Up, but if you are not sure if your child has a library card, or if it's still valid, you can check by clicking over to Patron Account and enter name, and library card number, as shown below.

Patron Account

If your account isn't found, or your card needs to be updated, call us at 734-397-0999, or use Contact Us to determine the issue.

If you are applying for a card for the first time, you can use our online card application form. A temporary library card will be issued to you, which is valid for 90 days. To convert your temporary card to a permanent one, come in to the library with ID and address verification documents. This process is for students who are Canton Township residents. Students who live in Plymouth Township or City of Plymouth should visit the Plymouth District Library to obtain a library card. 

Due to overwhelming response, please allow 3-5 business days to process library card requests.
