Is there a way that I can keep track of all of my family’s library cards at once?

Yes there is, and it’s called Library Elf. This service can be set up to send you notices regarding the due dates of your checked out items, as well as if you have any holds ready for pick. You can use Library Elf for a single library account, but you can also add multiple cards (those of your spouse and your kids, for example) to the same Elf account to keep track of everyone’s items in a single place.
