Dear Students, Teachers and Malden residents:
Do you want access to online educational resources – the Library can help.
The Malden Public Library will temporarily waive the in-person requirement to get a Malden Library Card. You will need the following information: full name, street address, telephone number, email address. We will then issue you a temporary library card number and PIN, which will allow you to access our amazing collection of online resources. This card will expire in three months. Transferring this temporary card to a permanent card will simply require you to come to the Library with ID and proof of address.
We will add new cards as soon as possible, but it may take several days for your card to be activated.
To get a library card email us at https://maldenpubliclibrary.org/contact-us/ or if you need more assistance you can call the Library Card Line at (781) 333-0640.
