1. General Policy
Photo identification showing current address must be presented for those 18 and over. If the photo identification does not show the patron's current address, then the patron must present additional proof of current residency, which may include any of the following:
A minor is defined as an individual under the age of 18 years, unless determined otherwise by a court order. A parent or guardian must sign a minor's application for a library card, accepting responsibility for items borrowed, lost or damaged by the child. Parents or guardians must show identification and provide requested address information on the minor's library card application.
5. Lost Library Card/Change of Address
Library cards are like credit cards and allow their possessor to borrow hundreds of dollars worth of materials. The library assumes that the person using the library card is the owner of that card or has the permission of the owner to use the card.
In the event of a lost or stolen card, the patron is responsible for notifying the library immediately. All materials checked out on a library card are the responsibility of the patron until the loss is reported. Until the library is notified of a lost or stolen card, a library card is valid and its owner is responsible for all use of the card and for any lost or overdue materials and fees incurred. In case of children under age 18, the parent or legal guardian who signed the library card application is the responsible party.
If a library card must be replaced for any reason a fee of $2.00 shall be charged.
Changes of address should also be reported promptly, the library may not be able to contact you about important information if your address is not up to date.
