Library Membership and Policies


LIBRARY MEMBERSHIPS


Patrons must possess a membership card in order to check out any of the library materials. Getting your own library card is easy and cheap. Here's what you need to do:
  1. Fill out the two info cards available at the Circulation Desk. One of the cards is your membership card, which you'll keep with you and present whenever you use the Library services, while the other is used by the librarians to enter your information into the system. When signing up, you will need to have a local address and telephone number.
  2. Pay your $1.00 fee to the librarian.
That's it! You're ready to borrow!
