A library card is issued to any person who is a permanent resident of Jackson County, is employed in the county, or who pays taxes in our county. He/she must fill out an application card and provide at least two forms of identification, one of which must verify proof of residency. We ask for basic information such as address and phone number, and one reference. Your reference will be someone who does not live in your household and can be an alternate contact should your contact information change. For the first month you have your card, you may check out up 2 items at a time. After the first month, you may check out up to 10 items. The first card is free. A lost library card may be replaced for $1.00. For each replacement, the fee is increased by $1.00
Checkouts, Limits, Fines and Lost Books
Our books, audios and videos check out for two weeks at a time, with 2 renewals available for each. Renewals can be made by phone. Our reference and genealogy books do not check out. The library does not charge overdue fines. Fines are only placed on a card for lost or damaged items. Materials are considered lost when they are 90 days overdue. Fines on a patron’s card must be under $5.00 to continue checking out. Lost or damaged materials will be fined at replacement cost. Lost books that have been paid for may be refunded if the book is returned in good condition.
