Your Library Card
Who can get a library card, how to apply, and how to use your library card.
OBTAINING LIBRARY CARD
1. All borrowers must be registered and must have a valid local patron card to borrow library materials.
2. Patrons must fill out an application form to register for a new library card. The following statement will be printed on the information and acceptance:
I agree to be responsible for all items borrowed with the library card issued in the above name, including items borrowed with it by others with or without my consent unless I have previously reported the loss of my card. I promise to comply with all library rules and policies both present and future, and to give prompt notice of change of address or loss of library card.
3. Identification is required. A driver’s license and a recent non-personal piece of mail verifying correct address may be acceptable.
4. Library materials are loaned for a period of two (2) weeks except for non-renewable items. Videos, CD’s, DVD’s, catalogs, and encyclopedias are for a period of one (1) week with no renewals, with the exception of adult how-to videos and items that are not in demand. CD’s and DVD’s cannot be returned in the book drop. A $.50 fine per item will be accessed for violating this rule.
A. Interlibrary loans are due the date indicated by the lending library.
B. Books may be renewed once if there is not a waiting list for that title, with the exception of Best Sellers.
C. Current issues of periodicals do not circulate.
5. Only four movies can be checked out to a family at one time. Otherwise there is no limit on the number of items an adult patron can borrow at one time. (age 16 & older), patrons ages 15 and younger are allowed four (4) items at one time unless parent or guardian is with them and they will be responsible for unlimited amount of items. There is one exception to this rule—only two (2) items on a subject is the limit for a known school assignment.
6. The borrower must make good any loss or damage to all books, records, magazines, videos, CD’s, DVD’s cassette tapes, or anything else borrowed.
