Borrower's Card
Proof of Residence is required to obtain a borrower's card.  A Borrower's Card is not required to use the library. However, a library card is required to check out, or use all library owned electronic devices, such as computer chargers, iPads, etc. Additionally, these devices are for in library use only.

 

Minors are issued a library card upon the request from their parent or legal guardian.
The parent or guardian must also have a valid borrower's card and that adult must be in good-standing
with the use of that card (e.g. no overdue items, no fines or fees owed to the library, and/or no lost and unpaid for items).

Parents and guardians of minors are the only persons who can restrict what a minor checks out of the collection.
Library staff will not accept the responsibility of the parent or legal guardian in determining the age or gender appropriateness items a minor selects to check out of the collection.
