Minors (under 18 years old) must have a parent or legal guardian present and sign the application to obtain a card.

If you are unsure what township you live in, you can go to the link below and type in your address next to Profile.
The "County subdivision" will show you the township.
If you do not live in an area that pays taxes to fund the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library:
A one-year membership to all the materials, electronic resources and databases is available for $125 (per household). The cost of a library card increased in January 2020 to better match what legal service area residents pay in taxes.
