Getting Started

Applying for a Library Card

Signing up for a library card is quick and easy!  Just come in and fill out a registration form.

You will also need a picture ID, such as a state driver’s license, state ID card, or a fishing or hunting license, and address verification such as utility bills, lease, or rent reciept with address.

New patrons will recieve a wallet-size library card as well as a keychain size with the same barcode.  Children five and up can also get their own card, so long as a parent/guardian signs for them.
