New Library Card: Franklin County residents is free. Requirement is proof of residence (e.g. a driver’s license, photo ID card, Passport with photo). If the address shown on the driver’s license is not current, we require a second form of proof of address (utility bill, cable bill, any first class piece of mail).

Minors under the age of 18 can obtain a library card with a consenting parent or legal guardian. The parent or legal guardian must have an active in good standing library card. The minor’s card will be attached for relationship purposes; the adult is responsible for all cards (late fees, lost books, etc.).

Non-Resident Library Card:  A non-resident staying in Franklin County can purchase a library card for $10 but you must register in person. Photo identification is required to receive your library card. This card is renewable annually.

 Replacement Library Cards will cost $1.00.
