|South Harrison||Woodbury Heights|
The Gloucester County Library System issues library cards in-person at any one of our branches located Glassboro, Greenwich, Logan, Mullica Hill, and Swedesboro. A photo ID and proof of residency must be presented in the form of any one of the following:
- NJ Drivers License
- NJ non-driver ID (issued by the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission)
- Current municipal tax bill, utility bill, or bank statement showing individual's name and address, and a photo ID
- Out-of-county owners of business or property located in a GCLS member community must show proof of business or property ownership, and a photo ID
Expired or lost cards
GCLS cards are renewed every 2 years. Please don't throw away your old card! Renew your card by presenting it to circulation staff along with your current driver's license. Your card will be updated. There is a $1 fee to replace a lost library card. If you have forgotten your card, you may present your driver's license.
