Your Library Card

Who can get a library card, how to apply, and how to use your library card.

User cards will be issued to any persons 3 years or older at no charge. Registration form of patrons under 18 years of age must be signed by a parent. Numbers will be issued to all patrons for privacy and use for check-out. A patron will be required to produce identification and fill out a registration for the library’s reference.

All patrons will be responsible for returning materials borrowed within the required time. They shall pay replacement costs for lost or damaged items. New patrons are allowed to borrow 2 items at a time during a probationary period of 2 months. If there are no late returns, and the patron is in good standing, then the patron will be granted regular borrowing privileges. Adult patrons & child patrons have slightly different borrowing privileges. Children are not allowed to borrow as many items at one time as an adult.
