    Apply for a card online click here.

    Bring a form of picture identification (for example a driver's license) with a current address. If you do not have a picture ID with a current address, then two forms of identification are needed: a picture ID and some form of official mail that does show your current address (electric bill, water bill, phone bill, etc.) to the main desk at the library. Cards are issued for immediate use. If you do not have a current I.D., you may still apply for a card. However, you will only be able to check out three items. You will need to bring along appropriate identification when you next visit the library.  Under age 16, children must have a parental signature. To apply online, click here.
