librarycardHow Do I Get a Library Card?

Library cards are free to everyone within our borrowing area.  If you wish to check out materials or use other in-house services the library provides, it will be necessary to visit us at the Circulation desk on the main level, at your convenience, to apply for and pick up your library card.  Please provide photo ID with proof of your mailing address, such as current Driver's license, pay stub, current utility bill or checkbook when you apply for a card.  See our Circulation Policy.

 

 Want to get a card for your child under 18?  Download a printable application form for minors and bring it with you the next time you visit us.  Parents must be present if registering a child under 18.

 

Online Registration Form

computerIf you are over 18 and do not currently have a library card, our online registration gives you a temporary library card number which allows you to place a hold on items today!  We will notify you at the email address you provide when the materials become available.  After completing the form, and reviewing our Circulation Policy, click "I ACCEPT" and a temporary library card number will be assigned to you.  You may log in using this temporary number along with your PIN, which is the last 4 digits of the phone number you've provided.  Your temporary library card number is only valid for 30 days.  It will still be necessary to stop by our circulation desk on the main level, bringing with you the required photo ID with proof of your address.
