Sign Up for a Free Virtual Library Card

Posted on Mar 28, 2020

How can I get access to the Albion District Library’s online resources if I don’t have a card? Or if my card is expired? Or if I have a lot of fines?

We encourage anyone living or working in the greater Albion area to apply for a card, especially for an online-access card, during this health emergency. Call the Library (517-629-3993) and leave a message, or fill out the link below, to sign up renew your library card or check the status of your current card. A staff member will contact you.

Many types of fines have been waived in the last two years, and we have relaxed the restriction on cards with fines. Please ask!


In general, all those who rent or own property in the City of Albion, Albion Township, and the Marshall Public School district in Sheridan Township are eligible for a standard ADL card. We also offer standard cards to residents of Jackson County, patrons of Homer Public Library, and staff and students of Albion College, through reciprocity agreements. We also now offer ADL accounts to those who live outside or our area, but work for a local business, government entity, or non-profit. Limited-borrowing cards are available to those not eligible for a standard borrower card.
