Q. How old do I have to be to get a library card?


Children under age 14 may receive a card the day of application if the registration form is signed by the parent or legal guardian and includes the parent's driver's license. You may print out a copy of our registration form in advance to bring with you to the library.

For adults to receive a card the day of application, identification with name and current address must be provided. Acceptable identification includes: California driver's license or California ID, checkbook with pre-printed address, a rental agreement, a property lease or deed, a property tax receipt, or postmarked mail.

eCards (online library cards) must be converted to a full-service card before checking out material from the library. With an eCard you may immediately use the databases and place holds. Register for an eCard.
