Provisional Library Cards

Are you a new patron? Register for a provisional library card today!

New patrons, register for a provisional Lynn Public Library card online today! All you need to do is complete this form. Once registered, a staff member will create your account and send you an email with your card number and PIN. If you don’t hear from us within 2 business days, email us at and we’ll be happy to get you started right away.

Provisional cards can then be used immediately to access our online resources (Overdrive/Libby, Mango, Gale courses, etc) and allow you to log onto your NOBLE account, where you will be able to browse our catalog and request items for pick-up. You will be given a physical copy of your permanent Lynn Public Library card at your first library visit (must provide proof of address). Provisional cards will automatically expire 2 weeks after registration. After 2 weeks, provisional patrons must visit the library with proof of their address in order to obtain a permanent account and card.

Existing patrons, if you’ve lost your library card and need a replacement, please visit us to obtain a new card. Provisional cards are intended for new patrons.
