Libraries Release Special-Edition Card for 75th Anniversary

In recognition of its 75th Anniversary in 2022, Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) will release a limited-edition commemorative library card during National Library Card Sign-Up Month in September.

FBCL cards are free to all Texas residents. New library users who apply for a FBCL card for the first time in September will automatically receive the special-edition anniversary library card.

To apply for a library card, visit any FBCL location. One of the following forms of a valid, unexpired photo ID must be provided to show proof of identification: a valid, unexpired government-issued photo ID, passports from any country, or any state driver license.

If the photo ID does not include a current address, bring a separate document to validate this information (mail, utility bill, etc. from the last 30 days).

Current FBCL cardholders, who would like to receive a special limited-edition library card, may pay a replacement fee of $2 to receive the anniversary card. The new card will have a new barcode number, and their existing account number will change.

For more information on how to get a library card, visit or call the library system’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
