How do I apply for a library card? 

Borrowers must fill in the library card application form in order to check out materials from the Hartley Public Library.  Anyone seven years of age or older may apply for a library card. To obtain a library card, patrons must fill in the form with the following information: last name, first name; current address; contact information; and signature.   

Patrons under the age of 16 must have a parent or guardian present in order to apply for a card.  

Applicants are responsible for all fees associated with materials checked out on their card including lost, stolen, and damaged materials. Parents or guardians assume responsibility for items on their minor child's account.  Patrons must be present in the library in order to apply for a library card.  Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the library Director.  


What can I check out?

Patrons may check out books, DVDs, CDs, Magazines, puzzles, and any other library materials that are eligible for check-out.  (Some materials may be available for use only in the library building.)  Children under the age of 16 may check out four items at a time, unless their parent or guardian contacts the library.  Only two items on a subject may be checked out at a time for a known school project.  There is no limit to the number of items an adult may check out.  

There is a limit of four DVDs at a time per family/household.  Only two New DVDs may be checked out per family/household.
