How do I get a library card?

There are two ways to get your library card.  There is a one business day waiting period once an application for a library card has been received.

Register in Person:  The quickest and easiest way to get a library card is to stop by the library during our regular business hours.  We will need photo identification and proof of your local mailing address when you submit your completed application. If you are under 18, your parent or guardian must sign your application.

Register via Electronic Message:  You can message us on Facebook, text or email a picture of your drivers license and proof of address, along with your phone number and email address.  We will get the card started for you and this will give you access to all of our electronic resources.  You will need to finish the application process the next time you visit the library to check out physical items.
