Get a Library Card

The Richards Memorial Library in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, is a member of the SAILS library network. A SAILS library card gives patrons access to materials at 70 libraries and branches throughout 39 communities in Southeastern Massachusetts.

To become a registered borrower, you need to fill out a library card application and furnish both photo identification and proof of your present address. Library cards are offered to Massachusetts residents and those who work or attend school in Massachusetts. Non-residents who do not work or attend school in Massachusetts can apply for a SAILS library card for a fee. The annual user fee is $75.00 in the SAILS library network. 

Library cards must be presented when checking out material. You can store your library card barcode on the SAILS Mobile app. Lost cards should be reported as soon as possible. You will need to present your photo ID at the library to get a replacement card. Please notify the library of any change of residential address, phone number or email. This may be done online through My Account in the Catalog or in person. Parents and guardians are responsible for items borrowed by their children.

Child and Young Adult Library Cards

If you would like your child to have their own library card, you, as a parent or legal guardian, must present a photo ID with your current address and fill out the library card application for your child. If a parent's card is blocked due to overdue items or fees/fines, the parent may not initiate a library card for their child. A parent may not check out items on their child's card if their own card is blocked.

If you have any questions regarding these policies, please ask at the Circulation Desk.

To access the on-line catalog Enterprise and your account, enter your entire 14 digit library barcode and your pin number. If you do not know your pin number, try the last 4 digits of your phone number.
