Can I get a library card for my child?

FAQ: Can I get a library card for my child?

Answer:

Yes! You can decide when your child is old enough to have his or her own card (even as a newborn baby), but please be aware:

  1. As parent/guardian, you are responsible for all items borrowed — including any fees for late, missing or damaged items.
  2. Your own account must be in good standing (under $10 in fines).
  3. Applications must be made in person — i.e. you and the child in question must be present.
