Come into the Library during open hours or apply online. A library card will be issued to any California resident upon presentation of a valid picture ID with a current address on it. If your ID does not have a current address on it, please bring in official mail, such as a utility bill or credit card bill, for address verification. The first library card is free! If you are under 18 years of age, you will need to bring in a parent or guardian to get a library card.
