Don't have a new card yet? Citizens in Burleigh County may sign up for a library card at no cost. Patrons who already have an account, but want a new card, may get a replacement for $1.00.

Photos may be used for library advertising and marketing, e.g. social media and library publications.

The Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library recently started issuing its re-designed library cards. The new card for adults features the Library’s logo. The youth library cards have two different designs. One card depicts a space scene, and the other features hot air balloons on a blue sky background.

Over 46,000 Bismarck and Burleigh County residents have library cards. 525,000 items get checked out annually. The Library is open to the public Monday-Thursday, 9 AM-9 PM; Friday-Saturday, 9 AM-6 PM; and Sunday 1 PM-6 PM.
