How to Get a Library Card
New borrowers must show a photo ID and proof of residence address (a Post Office box is not sufficient). Acceptable ways to prove residence are a current driver's license, voter registration card, a piece of mail postmarked within the last four weeks, or a current lease. You may also start the application process online.
Children of any age are eligible for library cards. If accompanied by a parent, the parent must show ID and proof of residence. If unaccompanied, the child must be able to give complete application information. A letter will be sent to a parent of children in 6th grade or younger about the child's receipt of a card and to confirm address. Children 7th grade and up not accompanied by a parent must show a photo ID (issued at local schools) and proof of residence.
