HOW TO GET A LIBRARY CARD
It’s easy! Just come in with identification that includes your name and current local address.
Children under the age of 14 must apply for a card with a parent or guardian who presents proper identification and cosigns the registration card.
Borrowing library materials requires a verified library account in good standing. Please note that you are responsible for all items checked out on your card.
