The library card identifies you to us. It allows us to quickly access your record and ensures that materials are charged out to the correct person.

As of July 1, 2006 our policy is to require patrons to present a library card in order to check out materials. We will be happy to hold your items for you if you have forgotten your library card, or you may replace your card for $2.00. This policy is to protect patron's privacy. Other libraries may have different policies.

  • First library cards are issued free of charge.
  • To apply for a library card, all that is necessary is proof of your current address.  For more detail of acceptable address documentation click here.
