Library Card

Your Library Card

Any resident living in the state of Iowa may obtain a library card.

Library cards are issued to individuals and are not transferable.

Children are eligible for their own library cards when they reach the age of five years.  Cardholders and parents/guardians of minors are responsible for all items checked out on their cards. All applicants must provide photo identification AND proof of current address. Minors under the age of 14 must have a parent/guardian signature in order to receive a library card.  The parent/guardian understands that the child will abide by the library rules and regulations, that overdues will be returned promptly and will be responsible for any library materials lost or damaged.  The parent/guardian understands that the library staff is not responsible, nor will they censor, the materials or number of materials that the child chooses to borrow with the library card.  The parent/guardian must understand that anything that the child checks out on the signed card will become the parent/guardian’s responsibility as a legal adult. All individuals applying for a library card must complete a registration card with current name, address and phone number.  Library card applications for children up to the age of 14 must be signed by a parent or legal guardian.  The parent/guardian must come to the library to sign the application. If applicant does not have proper photo identification and proof of current address, a “quick” card will be issued. This allows applicant to check out any 2 items on the quick card until proper identification is shown to library staff. Once proper identification and proof of current address is provided, a standard library card status will be given and applicant may have standard library privileges.  


The library will charge patron fees on materials that are lost or damaged that were checked out with their cards.
