Library Cards

All Essex Junction residents age 5 and older are eligible to receive a library card which entitles individuals to check-out books, magazines, videos, music, and recorded books. In addition, a Brownell Library card can be used to check-out materials at participating HomeCard libraries. Please bring an official form of identification and proof of residency.

Individuals who live outside of the HomeCard system may receive a library card for use at Brownell. Short-term library cards may be issued to temporary residents and students. Please contact Brownell for more information about these options.
