If you live in Minnesota outside of Hennepin County, you can register your local library card with Hennepin County Library.
Exceptions: Minnesota residents whose public library is not a member of one of the regional public library systems (Clarkfield, Crosby, East Grand Forks, Hendricks and Taylors Falls) are not eligible to register their library card but may apply for a nonresident fee card.
To register your card right away, bring your local library card and proof of your current address to any Hennepin County library.
You can also register your local library card online. If you include an email address in your application, you will be notified when the registration is complete (within five business days).

Hennepin County employees
If you work for Hennepin County but are not a resident of Hennepin County, you can register your library card from another Minnesota library system (see above) or apply for a Hennepin County Library non-resident employee card. Non-resident employee cards expire after 12 months but may be renewed pending verification of employment status.
