I know your thinking to yourself it's a library card so I can check out a couple of books, what fun. But wait.

Sure you can check out books and audiocassettes for 4 weeks. New books and audiocassettes(adult) 2 weeks, music CD's and software 2 weeks. If you are a new card carrying patron checking something out for the first time you are limited to 2 items. Once those 2 items are returned then you are allowed up to 10 items on your card if you are a juvenile and 30 items for adults.

All this seems pretty straight forward, but there must be something else this card is good for. Well, apply for an IDNYC card it's also a library card.
