Library Cards

Get a Library Card

Getting a library card is FREE and easy. All you need is ID with proof of your mailing address.

There are three ways to apply for a library card:

  • Come into the library and apply in person.
  • Call your local library and apply over the phone.
  • Submit an application for an online card.

If you already have a card from Sonoma or Mendocino County, it is good in Lake County. Lake County, Sonoma County, and Mendocino County all honor each others' library cards. If the card is lost, but you still have an account, we will update your registration and issue a Lake County card to you.

Children's Cards

A parent or legal guardian may send their card with a copy of their identification as above, and sign the application for all children under 18. Parents are responsible for the fines and fees that their children incur.
