Thank you for your interest in securing a Free Library of Philadelphia library card. The library system is currently accepting applications from oversees residents.
In order to obtain a card we ask that you fill out the following application http://www.freelibrary.org/registrat...pplication.pdf
and mail it to us along with a $15 payment in U.S. dollars. As an alternate to our overseas patrons who might have trouble sending a payment in U.S. dollars we are allowing you to send a clear scanned copy of the application to firstname.lastname@example.org
If anything is unclear please type the information in the text of email as well.
5 to 10 business days after we have received your application we will send you a card number along with information about how to logon and pay via credit card the $15 yearly fee. We will allow you 2 business days to complete the payment before deleting the record. Once you have made the payment please email a confirmation to email@example.com
so we can activate your card. At this time we are still mailing physical cards but anticipate that might change due to mailing costs.
Thank you for contacting the Free Library of Philadelphia.

That's awesome! I'm glad they are working out a system for overseas memberships!
