Put your students on the path to success with a library card!  Follow these simple steps to get cards for your class:

1. Visit your local library to pick up library card applications for your students, or make copies for your class using the library card application available online here (PDF).  A parent or legal guardian must sign the application for students under 18.

2. Please return all completed applications with  a cover sheet with the following information to your local library.

3. Allow at least 3 weeks for applications to be processed.  If your class is not scheduled to visit the library, we will contact you to arrange the pick up of your students’ cards.  If your class is scheduled to visit us, students will receive their cards on the day of their visit.
