a membership benefit, PLATO Members are eligible to receive a
UW-Madison Library Courtesy Card. The Card offers borrowing privileges
at all UW-Madison Libraries. To apply for the Library Courtesy Card:
1. Your PLATO Membership must be paid for the current Membership Year if you are applying before April 1st; it must be paid for the upcoming Membership Year -- August 1 through July 31 of the following calendar year-- if you are applying for a Library Card after April 1st. For example: If your library card is expiring in June or July 2019, you must renew your membership in PLATO for the 2020-2021 year--even if you have not yet received a renewal notice from PLATO. Simply go to MEMBERSHIP, log in, and renew online or mail a check with your membership fee.
