All residents of Canadian County are eligible for a library card.

How to Get a Library Card

There are two ways to get a library card:

In-house use:

  1. For full library services, visit the library to fill out an application for a library card. Show proof of address: an I.D., bill, check, piece of mail, etc. that states the applicant’s name and current address.
  2. For internet library services only (use of public computers and online resources), call or visit the library to fill out application. No proof of address is needed.

Children ages 15 and under must have a parent or guardian present to sign their library card.

Online use:

Card applications are now available to fill out and return online. This will grant you a card, in which you will be able to use for our online products, such as virtual library. The applicant must currently live in Canadian County.

To be approved for a library card, then you must either email, fax or come by the library and supply two documents that shows the applicants name and current address. They should include a photo ID and a piece of mail with the current address. We will only approve your application after we receive all the appropriate documents. We will process it and contact you with your card information.
