Replacement cards: Replacements for lost library cards can be issued at any Irving Public Library location with a valid photo identification and the clearing of any overdue materials or charges.

Patrons who have simply forgotten a plastic card at home or temporarily misplaced it can access most library services with a photo ID or card number saved in a digital card app.
