Library Cards
How Do I Get a Library Card?

Bring your picture ID and proof of address to any public library in Jefferson County and fill out an application. There is no charge for your card. You will receive a library card and may use it the same day. If you live outside Jefferson County, there is an annual fee of $50. Some municipal libraries may have different policies. Children under the age of 15 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the responsibility statement on the application.
