Inquiring Minds: Does Ramsey County accept Dakota County library cards?

Q. I live in Dakota County? Can I use your library?

A. All Twin Cities public libraries have agreed to honor each other’s library cards. You don’t need a library card to view our catalog and website, but if you wish to check out materials, request an item, or use a database remotely, you must first register your library card with us. 

If you already have a Dakota County Library card, you can bring it to one of our seven Ramsey County Libraries along with your photo ID, and we can create a patron record for you in our system. If your photo ID doesn’t have your current street address, please also bring a current bill or statement that shows your name and your street address to prove your residence for your card registration. At that point, you will be able to use our system.

If you don’t have a library card at all, please bring in a photo ID with a current address or a current bill or statement showing your name and current address. In that case, we can issue you a temporary card, and forward your information to Dakota County. Dakota County will mail a permanent card to your address. The next time you visit our library, you should bring the permanent Dakota County card with you so that we can replace your temporary number with your permanent Dakota County card in our data files. 

You may go through this same process with any of the public library systems in the Twin Cities.

We welcome you in all our Twin Cities libraries, and we want to make your experience easy and pleasant.
