How do I get a Charlton Public Library card?


Renewal or Replacement Card

If you already have a card but have misplaced it, please stop by the Library to pick up a replacement.

To renew your existing Charlton Public Library card, call or stop by the Library.


New Physical Card

To get a physical Charlton Library Card:

  • Visit the Circulation Desk in the Children's Room or on the Adult Level. Adults need a form of photo ID. Children need to be 5 years old and a parent/guardian present.

If you have a card from another CW MARS Library it will work at almost all libraries in Central & Western Massachusetts, including ours! You do not need to apply for another.



An eCard is a CW MARS library card that you can register for online to access electronic materials, such as ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, and databases. The eCard is for patrons who do not already have a CW MARS library card and may be upgraded to a physical library card with borrowing privileges by visiting the library and providing proof of address.

Apply for an eCard and use it online today!
