Get a Library Card

We Offer 3 Types of Library Cards:
  • Full access: use all library resources, including computers
  • Five item: for those who do not provide ID for full access
  • Computer use only

Cards expire once a year. Please visit any library to update.

ID Requirements
Any California resident may get a library card. Adults must show picture ID (CA driver's license or ID) with a current home address. If ID does NOT show a current home address, bring one of the following: personal check, recent utility or phone bill, property tax receipt, or any first-class mail with a current postmark. 
All youth applications must include a parent or guardian's signature and California ID number. Students with California or school ID should also bring their ID.

More Information
Library cards are for self-use only. This protects individuals from other's misuse of library cards. The only exception is when the parent listed on a child's account checks out materials using that child's card. This is allowed because the parent listed is the responsible party for materials checked out on the child's card. The reading and viewing activities of youth under 18 are the responsibility of parents and guardians. The library does not assume that responsibility.
