HOW DO I GET A LIBRARY CARD

You can get a library card if:

  • You are a resident over the age of 16 and can provide a photo ID with a McDonald County address.

  • You are a resident under the age of 16 and have your parent/guardian’s signed permission.

  • You are a non-resident who owns property (real estate) in the county and can provide property identification.

  • None of the above apply and you pay $10 for a year or $3 for three months for your entire family.

We also have a reciprocal agreement with Newton County Libraries. If you show us your Newton County Library Card, we will waive the $10 fee.

Please stop by the Library to apply for a library card.
