A library card is available free of charge to all individuals

who show proof of residency within our service area.

Temporary Library cards are being issued to patrons living in the library's service (while the Library is closed to foot traffic). Please send the following information to

Once the Library is again open to the public, temporary Library card holders will be required to bring in a State ID or Drivers License with current address or ID with proof of residency.


           Acceptable proof of residency:

  • City or township tax bill

  • Drivers license with local address

  • Lease agreement

  • Utility bill with your local address - power, water, cable

The cardholder is responsible for all library materials checked out, overdue fines, and various fees. Cardholders must report lost or stolen library cards to the Checkout Desk, 837-3457. Change of name, address, phone number, or email address should be reported to the Checkout Desk. Minors (under 18 years old) must have a parent or legal guardian present and sign the application to obtain a card.
