Library Cards + Borrowing
How do I apply for a library card?
To apply for a library card, please inquire at the Circulation Desk. Keep in mind, library cards stop being made 15 minutes before closing time. Please bring the following 2 documents:
- Current Photo ID (need not show address, must include current name, copies are not accepted)
- Official First Class postmarked mail from a business (handwritten mail is not acceptable) or a utility bill or another federal, state, county or municipal document dated within the last 60 days and show current name & address
Note: For children under 18, no documentation is required for the child, only the documentation for the parent/legal guardian.
Please look at our policy for more details:Library Card Policy
How may I renew my library card?
To renew your library card, please bring the expired card and the above-mentioned two forms of identification. If you have lost your card, there is a replacement fee, with a discount for seniors.
What may I check out with my card and how long may I keep the items?
You may check out a maximum of 200 items but the maximum number of DVDs and console games combined is 20. All materials check out for 3 weeks. The fine for overdue materials is 15¢ per day per item.
