Library Procedures
Applying for a Library Card

All Tennessee residents are eligible for a library card at no cost. To apply, simply present proof of your identity and current address at the Circulation Desk. The parent/legal guardian and the juvenile must both be present at the time of application.

Parents are responsible for anything their child checks out, fines, damages, and lost items and as such are expected to monitor their children's activities.


Individuals that live outside the state may obtain a library card at an annual cost of $10.00 for adults 17+ and $5.00 for children. The parent/legal guardian and the juvenile must both be present at the time of application. A valid ID must be presented to apply.
