Valid ID and Address Verification

When you apply for a library card, proof of your identity and your current address is required to validate your card.

Proof is also required to validate a change of address to an existing account in our records. 

Proof of identity should be a current photo ID, such as:

  • Valid driver's license
  • State ID
  • Passport
  • Student ID 
  • Military ID
  • Other identification containing photo + first and last name

Proof of address can include:

  • Valid driver's license (if the address is current)
  • Recent utility bill
  • Recent pay stub
  • Lease agreement
  • Voter registration card
  • Recently post marked mail addressed to the applicant


Applicants under 18

For standard library card applicants under 18, a parent or legal guardian's ID and proof of address is required. Both child and parent must appear in person.

For eCard applicants under 18, a parent's ID is only required if you don't have your own valid photo ID with current address.
