Library cards are issued free of charge to county residents aged 18 or over upon presentation of a photo ID with permanent address. Cards may be requested at any library branch. If your photo ID does not show your permanent address, please bring separate proof of address within the county, such as a utility bill, bank statement, or rent receipt in your name. Those under 18 requesting cards must have a parent or guardian accompany them to sign the application form. Parents are responsible for any fees associated with their minor child’s card.

A fee of $1 is charged to replace stolen, lost or damaged library cards. You will need to present photo ID at a library service desk to get a replacement card.
