How to Get a Card:

  1. Library cards are free to all patrons. Patrons must show a current/valid picture ID to receive a library card.

  2. Kids and teenagers may apply for their own cards (there is no minimum age). However, a parent or guardian must sign their child’s registration card and must present the signed card in person to the library. Parents must show a current/valid picture ID. Parents or guardians are responsible for all materials checked out by their children.

  3. Children and teens have access to the internet when they get their own card. Parents, please add your child's name to your card if you do not want your child to have internet access.

  4. If the address on the ID is incorrect, the patron is required to show additional proof of residency, such as a lease, bank statement, insurance card, or water bill.

  5. Patrons may have a delay of up to 48 hours to receive their new library card.

  6. Replacement of a lost card results in a fee of $1.00.


Loan Periods:

All materials circulate for two weeks, with a $0.10 fine for each day late per item. Patrons may renew materials in person, over the phone (512-332-8880), or online by logging into their account. Materials may be renewed twice as long as there is not a person waiting to get the material. Materials may be returned inside the library during business hours. The outside book drop is open 24 hours a day and is located on the east side of the library.


Please review our Circulation Policy.
