Obtaining a Library Card

Any person kindergarten & up who lives in Cameron County may obtain a library card free of charge. Adults must present some form of identification showing their name and local address. A current Pennsylvania driver’s license or similar form of identification is acceptable.

Children, kindergarten & up may have their own library card. A parent or guardian needs to accompany the child (kindergarten through age 15) on his or her first visit to the library and sign the registration card for the child, thus assuming responsibility.

If the parent or guardian does not have a current library card of their own, they must show proof of Cameron County residency before the child can be issued a card. Any 16 year old resident of Cameron County is eligible for his or her own card. By signing our registration card, they assume responsibility for any materials borrowed.

Persons who are not residents of Cameron County and have no home-based library can obtain a library card by paying a yearly non-resident’s fee of $25.00.
