Kids & Teens
There is no age requirement to get a library card. However, children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who assumes responsibility for materials borrowed. Learn more about the requirements for getting a library card and how to apply.
Children and teens under 18 require the consent of a parent or guardian to use the library's internet computers. The best way to give your child access to the library's computers is to get them a library card. Guardians can allow access to the filtered internet computers or the standard internet computers. Filtered computers are located next to the Help Desks and block social media and email sites.
