Apply for a library card online

In this time of social distancing, Scandinavia Public Library has stepped up to offer community members a new opportunity to apply for and renew library cards virtually. The application and renewal process enables individuals to access digital library services without leaving the comfort and safety of their homes – even when libraries’ doors are closed.

“InfoSoup digital services are open to you even while (libraries) are closed,” said Evan Bend, Library Services Manager with the Outagamie Waupaca Library System (OWLS). Individuals that don’t have a library card with InfoSoup can sign up for one online and library staff will contact them with a temporary card number and pin that will allow access to all the InfoSoup digital resources.

An InfoSoup library card grants patrons access to digital resources for all ages such as ebooks, audiobooks, digitized magazines, newspaper archives and genealogy research. All resources are absolutely free with a library card. Learn more at

To register for a card, simply complete an online application at Library staff will follow up with each applicant with a library card number and PIN to access the library’s online resources. Registrations will be processed during regular operating hours at the Scandinavia Public Library.
