No, your birthdate is not required for registration. If the library already has this information on file, it will be shown on the registration page and saved to your account. If the library does not have your birth date on file with your library card, it will not be displayed on the registration page, and you don’t need to provide it if you so choose. However, if you decide not to provide your birth year and month, the system will assume you are a minor, and for safety reasons, some features will not be available to you. In the United States, minors are not able to send or receive messages, create a username, or write comments.
