Anyone from babies to adults will be able to get a library card. Minors are required to have a parent or guardian’s signature.
If you are not using a library card because of overdue fines, you can start over with a clean slate by attending any one of the four open house events and get all of your overdue fines forgiven. Overdue items must be returned before fines can be forgiven.
