How to Get a Card

In order to get a library card, you need some form of ID or paperwork with your full name. Some examples of documents that will work include a driver's license, credit card, debit card, checkbook, school ID, report card, birth certificate, social security card, passport, a copy of a lease, or an EBT card. The library will also ask for address information. The address does not need to be permanent.
