A free library card is issued to anyone who fills out a library card registration form and presents proof of identification and current address. Minors under 18 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian sign the library card registration form. A parent or legal guardian’s identification may be used for minors. A parent or legal guardian has legal responsibility for his or her child’s use of the library.
Identification should include:
1) Photographic identification, such as a valid drivers license, passport, valid student I.D., or valid military I.D. card.
2) Proof of current street address, such as recently postmarked mail.
3) Parents or guardians must also supply the correct birth date for minor children.
Library cards are required for use of library resources to protect the patron and the library from fraud or misuse of their accounts. Patrons should present their library card each time they check out an item or wish to use a library computer. If patrons do not have their card with them, staff may request photographic identification.
