For my local public library and their satellite branches, you do need a library membership to borrow e-books. You can't apply for membership online even though you "check out" e-books online. Applying for a membership has to be done in person and you need proof of state residency for the free membership or you pay a fee for an out-of-state membership (but proof of a US address is also required).
