Get a Library Card

With a Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) library card, you will have access to items across the county's 16 locations. You can use your card at any WCCLS library and access eBooks, streaming, and other online resources from home.

Who can get a library card?

Residents of Washington, Multnomah, and Clackamas Counties in Oregon or Clark, Klickitat, and Skamania Counties in Washington can get a WCCLS library card for free.

Those who live outside the service area described above may obtain a WCCLS library card for an annual user fee of $140.00. A free "courtesy card" may be issued to non-residents who can provide evidence that they work or attend school within Beaverton city limits.

Great! You can log in to your account to request materials, check due dates, renew items, and update account information.
