Children Reading

Children must be 6 years old or older to receive their very own library card. A parent or legal guardian must come with the child to the library to co-sign the orange registration card. Once children have their own library card, they may check out books, movies, and magazines, or use our patron computers with Internet access. Children playing computer games are allotted an one-hour time limit on our computers each day.

To learn more about obtaining one, click on the library card below:
