Welcome to Siouxland Libraries!

A Siouxland Libraries card is one of the best cards you'll ever own.

With this one simple card, you have access to hundreds of thousands of physical and digital items--books, eBooks and eAudiobooks, movies, music, magazines, board games, and more! Your card also provides access to free learning resources for all ages.

Your card can be used at any of our 13 branches, as well as our Bookmobile.

There are two easy ways to sign up for a Siouxland Libraries card:
