Library Cards

Sign Up for a Full-Service Library Card

Sign up for a Full-Service Library Card in person at the front Checkout Desk. If you are over 16, we will need to see a photo ID with proof of your current address. If you’ve just moved to the area, a utility bill in your name, along with a photo ID will do. Patrons under 16 must have the signature of their parent or guardian to obtain a card.
