How do I get a library card?

 

Temporary Library Cards For New Longwood Residents

Temporary library barcodes are available for Longwood Central School District residents who do not already have a library card. Temporary barcodes are honored for 30 days. With the barcode, you can download ebooks, use online research tools and place holds on materials. Click Here and enter your residence information to begin the process. Borrowing library materials is contingent on getting a permanent card.


Adult Library Card

Any resident of the Longwood Central School District, 17 years of age or older, upon presentation of 1 current proof of residency (ie.: current driver's license, school ID, report card, recent utility or telephone bill, car registration, car insurance card, etc.) may complete an application and be issued a library card with full privileges and responsibilities. Library cards will expire after 3 years.


Young Adult Library Card

An application for a Young Adult between the age of 12 years and 16 years of age 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.


Children's Library Card

An application for a child under the age of 12 must be completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian responsible for the minor. Parent or legal guardian, by signing the application, accepts responsibility for late or lost materials.Proof of birth date is required.The library uses a photo identification system to issue library cards.  A juvenile card holder may borrow materials from the children's area. At the time of application, the parent or legal guarding may authorize the child to borrow material from the Adult Collections. This may be Adult Non-Fiction and Fiction Books (excluding New Books), Adult Non-Fiction Videos, J Videos, OR the authorization may include all Adult materials except DVDs, New Entertainment Videos and New Books.


Business Library Card

Should any requests for library privileges be received from individuals owning businesses in our district, cards may be issued in the name of the business. Proof of address on letterhead signed by the owner is required. The owner will provide the names of employees who are authorized to use the card. Such cards will be limited to "Local Use Only" with Interlibrary Loan request privileges. Accordingly, any overdue or lost library materials would then become the responsibility of the business owner.


Brookhaven National Laboratory Residents

The Library will grant Brookhaven National Laboratory residents full library privileges for "Local Use Only" including Interlibrary Loan. The Library will issue one adult card per family.

 

It should be noted that there is no basis for denying anyone a library card who is a resident of our district. The delinquent borrowing record of one member of a family cannot be used against another member of the same family.
