How do I get a library card?

Library cards will expire after 3 years.


Getting a Card for My Child

An application for a Juvenile or Young Adult library card must be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian responsible for the minor. The parent or legal guardian, by signing the application, accepts responsibility for late or lost materials. At the time of application, the parent or legal guardian may authorize the Young Adult for full or restricted Internet access.
