How do I get a library card?

Library users must present a valid library card to check items out. All residents of Nuces County are eligible to register for a library card free of charge from the NCLS. This privilege extends to those residing in and/or employed in Nueces County.

Out-of-district applicants may request a library card, free of charge, and will have to show proof of address.  Out-of-district applications expire one year but can be renewed at no cost.

To register for a library card, the applicant must show proof of address. New library users are permitted limited materials at the time of registration (up to 5 Books and 2 DVD's) but will not have access to ILL materials during the first visit. Parents are required to sign a statement of responsibility for children under the age of 18 or do not have an ID card.

Library cards expire every four years but can be renewed at no cost. Library cards that are not used in four years may be deleted from the system unless there is a fine on the account. Lost library cards can be replaced for a $2.00 fee.

Two policies are to be reviewed and agreed to by signing on the back of the application card: the Internet Access Policy and the Video/Dvd Policy.
