Palo Alto residents will now be able to register for city library cards from home with a new online registration offer, library officials announced.
Card registration is available online at the city's library Web site and requires residents to enter basic contact information and a personal identification number, according to library officials. Online registration forms are also available on any Palo Alto city library computer.
After submitting an application, residents are assigned temporary library card numbers valid immediately for use with the library's online database and online book hold. Temporary cards are good for 30 days.
Permanent cards can be retrieved with valid identification and proof of current address at any Palo Alto Library, library officials said.
