 What Do I Need To Get A Library Card?

     Applicants that wish to have access to all the material in the library beyond digital material are required to present two forms of identification, one photo ID and one showing their current address.  Applicants under the age of 18 must have a parent/legal guardian present when they apply for a library card.     

Digital Library Card

     If you only want access to digital material, get a digital library card. You can use apps like Hoopla and Overdrive to download or stream books, graphic novels, children’s picture books, movies, music and more!
