Q. I am travelling and don't have my library card with me. How do I retrieve my library card number?

Colorado Library Privacy Laws require BPL to verify your identity with a photo ID before we can give out your library card number. If you cannot make it to a BPL location to do this, you can send a photo of your photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc.) and a photo of yourself (or a "selfie" with you holding your ID) so we can confirm your identity matches the information on your account before sending the library card number along. The photo(s) can be sent to ask@boulderlibrary.org
