How can I get a library card?

In order to receive a library card that permits the holder access to the free services of the Ruth Enlow Library System, the applicant must:

  1. Show his/her state ID or other proof of address (military addresses are acceptable) listed below.
  2. Complete and sign the application/borrower's agreement.
  3. If the patron cannot provide a state ID, other forms of identification may be accepted.
    Acceptable forms of identification include:
    • Military ID
    • Consular ID
    • Passport
    • Employer ID with photograph

    Acceptable proofs of address include:

    • Utility bill
    • Bank-issued checks
    • Mortgage or lease
    • Other mail processed through USPS with the patron’s name and current address
      If the patron is unable to provide any of these acceptable forms of identification, a post card will be mailed to the patron’s home address. The patron must return to the library with the post card to pick up his or her card.
  4. Applicants under the age of eighteen without a state ID must have a parent or legal guardian sign the Borrower's Agreement for them.
  5. Applicants sixteen years or older with a state ID should sign a Borrower's Agreement for themselves.
  6. Library cards are valid for three years, after which they must be renewed.
