Most Massachusetts residents, including students, are entitled to a free library card1. If you already have a current library card from a qualifying public library in C/W MARS you may use your existing card to borrow materials at Forbes Library.
If you are not eligible for a free library card you may purchase a card for an annual fee of $35.
If you need a card, please ask for an application at the main desk. A photo ID and proof of address are required. Replacements for lost cards cost $2. If you are unable to visit the library in person to obtain a library card, contact email@example.com or call 413-587-1017 to request an application be mailed.
- Any resident of a Massachusetts community which receives State Aid to Libraries Grants is entitled to a free library card.
