Children's Library Cards

Obtaining and Using Your Library Card

A library card can be obtained in person at any of our three locations: MainBayview, or West Side. Excluding special circumstances, a child must be able to print their first name. A child may receive a library card during a school field trip to the Library or Bookmobile. Teachers submit library card applications signed by the student’s parent or legal guardian and verify addresses prior to the field trip.
