Library Card

Northern Library Network Library Card

We are part of the Northern Library Network (NorLN). If you already have a card for another NorLN Member Library, your card will work here.

To obtain a library card, fill out a library card form available from the librarian. Please bring two forms of ID proving your current address. One form MUST be a Driver's License or State Issued Photo ID.

Children may have their own card at age 5. A parent must be present and have their driver's license and proof of current address in order to sign up children ages 5-13. Teens aged 14-17 may obtain a card without a parent if they have proper ID. A parent must be present if their child (under 18) wishes to sign up for computer privileges.

Patrons may check out a maximum of 5 items on their first check-out, and thereafter may check out any number of materials. For security purposes, a card is required to check out books. A $3 fee will be assessed for replacement cards.
