Anyone under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or legal guardian provide proof of residency as listed above. Both the minor and the adult must be present when submitting the library card application.

If you lose your card, you may obtain a replacement for $3. If your card expired due to inactivity, you can get a new card for free. In either case, you must submit a new application.
