Is the card number part of their login mechanism? If so, then it should propagate from the keychain. If the site doesn't allow it, then you might be out of luck.27" i7 iMac SL, Lion, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2

The way I do that — easier than a script — is with a text clipping. Type your card number into a text editor. select it and drag it to the Desktop. The resulting file is called a text clipping. You can drag and drop it into the entry field whenever you go to the site.
Keep the file someplace convenient. Name it "Library Card" or whatever you like. If you want to be fancy, give it a custom icon. Maybe the library logo, for example.

Nice trick, but not very secure. i can now see users doing that with their credentials to secure sites. Opens many concerns. Nothing beats being lazy. BTW, the AppleScript can be set up to demand the user's credentials, to preserve security.27" i7 iMac SL, Lion, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2

Assuming the library site is a webpage, use 1Password. It will do the job for you and securely. Been using it for years for just this kind of thing.
You have to pay for it but there's a full 30 day trial so you can see if it works for you before parting with the cash.
