For PLAC cards, the library requires an accepted form of photo ID and we must verify that the applicant is in good standing with their home library.
Juveniles under the age of 18 are eligible for library cards and are exempt from the documentation requirement provided their responsible party has a library card in good standing.
Renewing a Library Card:
In order to renew your account, cardholders over 18 are required to produce an accepted form of photo ID and an accepted proof of residency document. This is an opportunity for the library to make sure that your contact information and residency status is correct. Juvenile accounts can be renewed by the responsible party listed on the account. If the responsible party has changed, a new application will need to be completed with the new responsible party signing the application.
At the time of renewal for Non-resident and PLAC cards, annual fees are due. The price associated with these cards is subject to change on a yearly basis.
