In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the City of Austin and the Austin Public Library are extending assistance where possible.

The Austin Public Library invites Hurricane Harvey evacuees staying in the Austin area to sign up for a free Library Card that will allow limited access until December 31, 2017. 

Evacuee Library Cards allow three physical checkouts, three holds on physical items as well as access to the Virtual Library. 

Library Card applications must be made in person at any Austin Public Library. Any form of a photo identification will be accepted for people applying for an Evacuee Library Card.
