A library card will be issued upon verification of your photo identification and current mailing address. Parents or guardians may show their identification in lieu of identification for children. Annually, the library will verify your address, telephone number and email to maintain accurate records.


A card holder is responsible for all materials checked out on his or her library card. Parents are responsible for materials checked out by their children. A card must be presented for checkout.


Most materials circulate for three weeks, DVD’s one week. New books circulate for two weeks.
