How To Get a Library Card

library-card.jpgTo check out books and movies, as well as use other services in the library, you will need a library card.

Library cards are free.  If you lose your card and need a replacement, the cost is $1.00. 

To obtain a card, stop in the library and bring your ID with you to make the process go faster. 

If you live in the Sloan Public Library service area, the card will allow you access to all of our digital content as well as in-library materials. If you do not live in the Sloan Public Library service area, you can still get a card, and use it to check physical items out of the library, but you will be unable to access our digital content such as ebooks and databases. 

Must be at least 8 years old to obtain a library card. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult when child is issued a new card.
