Get a Library Card
How Do I Get My Library Card?
Simply come to the Library if you are at least 18 years of age, are a Texas resident, and have a valid Texas Driver’s License, Texas ID, or passport with current address. If address is not current/correct, patrons must bring a piece of mail, insurance card, lease agreement, or other acceptable item with their name and current address on it. If patrons have out-of-state Driver’s Licenses and/or IDs, we will accept them as long as they also bring a valid and acceptable piece of mail with their name and current Texas address. Minors between the ages of 4 - 17 can get Library cards if their parent or legal guardian is present to sign the contract. You can use your Library card to borrow Books, DVDs, Blu-Rays, Video Games, and Audio Books, and access our digital eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines! Be sure to bring your Library card with you! You must present it to check out items on your account.
What Does It Cost To Get A Library Card?
Your first Library card is FREE! Each replacement card is only $5.00.
DVDs/Blu-Rays/Video Games: 1 Week
All other items: 3 Weeks
Up to 15 total items per Library card (including maximum 5 DVDs/Blu-rays)
Books and Audio Books may be renewed one time if items are not on hold for another patron. You may renew online, by calling (903) 237-1350, or by visiting the Service Desk.
What Happens If I Return Items Late?
If patrons are not careful to bring borrowed materials back on time, they will receive a late fee. The overdue charges accrued each late day are as follows:
Books:.............................................$0.25, max. $20.00
Audio Books:...................................$0.25, max $20.00
DVDs/Blu-rays/Video Games:.........$2.00, max $20.00
Interlibrary Loan:.............................$0.50, max. $20.00
Patrons are responsible for the cost of lost items. Overdue accounts will be referred to a collection agency if patrons owe $20 or more, or if an item is 6 weeks overdue. Courtesy notices are sent by mail, e-mail, or phone/text, depending on the method selected when obtaining the Library card. Not receiving sent notices does not relieve patrons of their financial responsibility for fees and unreturned materials. It is the responsibility of the patron to notify the Library of any changes in their contact information.
