How do I get a law library card or a computer user card? Is my old card still valid? How do I get a replacement card?

How do I get a law library card or a computer user card?

You must fill out a Registration Form. Photo identification such as a California driver’s license or California identification card is required; neither can have a P.O. Box without providing additional identification. Additional identification would include a recent electric, gas, water or garbage bill that shows the street address, city, and state. An attorney must also provide his/her bar number. Also see Library Cards & Borrowing.

 

I had a library card many years ago. Is it still valid?

You can call the Circulation Desk at (510) 208-4832 or visit the Library at 125 12th St, Oakland, CA 94607. A staff member will check the library’s records to determine if you are still registered. 

 

I lost or cannot find my library card. Can I get a replacement?

A replacement card can be purchased for $3.00 at the library. Photo identification such as a California driver’s license or a California identification card is required. See the information under “How do I get a law library card?” above to find out what forms of identification are accepted.
