Get a library card at any library branch. Just bring in a photo ID and proof of your Hartford address. If your ID has your current address on it, that's all we need. If not, bring in a copy of your lease or mortgage, a recent utility bill, or recent piece of mail showing your name and address. Please see our full policy here.
