FAQ

 

How do I get a library card?

Any resident of Wisconsin is eligible for a card.   Adults need to present a valid driver’s license, or some other valid form of picture ID, along with ID that contains their current address.  They must complete a MORE application card and agree to comply with the policies of the MORE libraries.  Applicants under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian give their written consent on the application form before a new card can be issued. The parent or guardian must sign the card in the presence of the library staff. Cards are issued the same day. Only the person to whom the card is issued may use that card.

All library cards must be renewed annually so that the staff may verify the current address. In order to renew a library card, patrons must produce identification.  Replacement cards are available for $2.00.
