All Allegheny County residents can sign up for a library card at the library circulation desk. Library cards are free, and give you access to wide variety of library materials not just in the Carnegie Library of Homestead, but in all of Allegheny County!
To apply for a library card you must show photo ID. Minors under the age of 18 must be present with a parent or guardian to apply for a library card. The parent or guardian must have photo ID, and must sign and accept financial responsibility for the minor.
Please report lost or stolen library cards immediately. Bring ID to the library and Circulation Desk staff will issue you a new one. There is a $1.00 charge for a new card.
You are not permitted to use another patron’s card for internet or borrowing privileges. Your card may be blocked if you are using another patron’s card.
You can renew your library materials at the circulation desk, online, or by calling 412-462-3444.
You can request materials from any public library in Allegheny County. When you find the item you want in the online catalog, click on the purple box where it says “Request This Item”. You will then have to enter your name, library card number, and the library where you would like to pick up the item.
