My Library Card

What's the value of a library card?

  • Immeasurable. Your first library card is free. Through your local library, it's the gateway to collections of books, videos, and music CDs for adults, teens, and children at 42 different libraries. It also provides access to computers and the Internet.

 Who can get a library card and what's needed?

  • Residents of any age may become registered borrowers. Adults must complete an application form and show proof identity and address, typically by providing a valid driver's license or a combination of photo ID and official mail, such as an electric or water bill to you at your home address.
  • Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the application form or must present valid photo identification in the form of a driver's license, sheriff's ID or school ID.
  • A library card is required to borrow materials or use the public access computers in the library.

What if I lose my card?

  • Library cards may be replaced for $1.00. Credit card- and key chain-style cards are available at the circulation desk. Please bring a driver's license or other photo ID.

What if I find the lost card after it's been replaced?

  • Lost cards that are found should be discarded. They may no longer be used to borrow materials.

May I share my card?

  • Library cards may not be shared; they are intended only for the use of the individual named on the card.
