To apply for a library card, you need to provide both a photo ID and a separate proof of residency.
- Photo ID: Driver’s License or State ID (these must be current).
- Proof of residency: Official piece of mail such as current month’s utility bill, current lease agreement, or property tax statement.
To renew a library card, you need to provide a photo ID with your current address. If your current address is not the address listed on your ID, you will need to bring in a separate proof of residency.
Minors age 3 to 17 will need their parent or guardian to provide these documents.
You must be at least three years old to apply for a card.
