Getting a library card

The Longmont Public Library will issue a new library card to anyone residing in Colorado who shows proper identification. We require a photo ID and proof of current address. The CO driver’s license fulfills both requirements.

Patrons who are sixteen years old and older need proof of CURRENT residence and a photo ID. These can be on two separate documents. The document accompanying the photo ID can be anything with a correct name and a current address:

Patrons under 16 years old need a parent or guardian PRESENT to verify address and identification of child. We will only provide library card registration forms to school classes via the children’s department. We encourage patrons to be old enough to sign their cards, but this is not mandatory. Patrons ages 16-17 are entered into the computer as children, though they do not have to have their parent present.
