BPL now only allows one active library card per patron account. If you have an IDNYC card linked to your library account we have set it as your default card and you can use its 15 digit card number (the one on the back of your idNYC card) to log in – your BPL card has been temporarily deactivated. If you’d prefer to reset your BPL library card back as your default card, please call 718.968.7275, contact us with your full name and the 14 digit BPL barcode number – or just visit any BPL location for assistance.
