Get a library card


Sign up for a library card yourself, and check out books to learn stories, songs, rhymes, and fingerplays to use at home to stimulate and encourage your child's development.
As soon as your child is able to write their own name, they are eligible to sign up for their own library card! Children must visit the library in person with a guardian to sign up for a library card.
Encourage your kids to check out library books. Find out more about more about borrowing materials.
