Sawyer Free Library Card

Any resident of Gloucester, Massachusetts may obtain a free Sawyer Free Library card.  If you already have a card issued by another NOBLE library, you may use that card at Sawyer Free Library without registering for a new card. Learn how to get a card on our Getting a Library Card page


You may use your library card to check out, request, and renew items, including electronic materials, as well as log onto the public computers and reserve museum passes. If you forget to bring your card, please have your identification ready so we can look up your record. You may also show a picture of your signed card on your mobile device.


You can also create a local use only card that will allow you to immediately access all of Sawyer Free Library’s online resources and local print collections. For instructions to create a local use card, click here.
