No. Every library has different requirements for issuing library cards because libraries are funded mostly by local taxes. However, you are able to borrow items from most libraries in the state through MeLCat which is a federally-funded program through the State of Michigan. Visit the Michigan eLibrary website to have items sent directly to your home library or ask a Library employee to help you, or you can get a MILibraryCard sticker for your library card that will allow you to visit other participating libraries in Michigan and borrow print materials. To find out more, visit the MILibraryCard website.
