What you need to know

To obtain a card (or to pick up a card if you have registered online) please come in person to the library with proof of residency, i.e. a picture ID, such as a driver’s license. If your driver’s license does not have a current address please bring a piece of mail, a bill or a lease with current address.

Children’s cards are issued when the child is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who has proper ID.  A child’s library card is issued and kept in the Children’s Room.

A library card is needed each time you borrow materials from the library or to access most the online services via the Internet. Your card ensures accurate and fast checkout, enables you to borrow materials when our computer system is down, and protects your privacy at the Main Desk.

A lost or damaged card can be replaced for a $1.00 fee. You are responsible for all materials borrowed on your library card. The full cost or lost or damaged materials will be charged including a $6.00 service fee.

Email address will be used to notify you about holds and other library business.

Out-of-state residents must pay an annual $75.00 non-refundable fee. The library card issued is valid at all MVLC libraries and for all MVLC libraries’ materials.
