How do I get a library card?

Library cards are free. Identification and proof of residence are required for adults when the card application is completed. Minors (16 years old and younger) need a parent's or guardian's signature on their application. There is no minimum age requirement to obtain a library card. You can fill out and print an application ahead of time (you will not be able to save a filled-in version of the form). Bring the application(s) to the Checkout Desk to get your library card; be sure to bring your photo ID and proof of address as well. 

Accepted ID

Photo Identification may be provided with any U.S. state driver’s license or identification card, a passport, a school ID, or any official picture ID. 

Proof of address

Proof of address may be provided on the same driver’s license or identification card if it is current. 

Also accepted are: 

  1. An “official” piece of mail (electric bill, cable bill, etc.)
  2. Address on a bank statement, payroll statement, etc.
  3. Checkbook
  4. Rental agreement with the complete address plainly entered.
