How to Get a Library Card

Fill out a library card application at any branch. Be sure to bring an acceptable form of photo identification with you (driver’s license, military id, passport) and proof of local mailing address (utility bill, rental agreement, piece of mail). Children under the age of 18 without a driver's license will need a parent's or guardian’s signature.


Renewing Items

All materials except DVDs may be renewed once by phone, in person or online unless the item is reserved for another library patron. DVDs may be renewed in person at our branch locations.
