How Do I Get a Library Card?

 

You do not have to be a resident of Williamson to get a card. In order to comply with the Pioneer Library System's recommendation for operation, the following requirements are in effect when applying for a library card.

 

Cards for Children

 

· All children aged 14 and under will receive “Juvenile” status library cards.

 

· A parent or legal guardian must be present to sign the application card and accept financial responsibility for the child’s use of the library card and all charges associated with it.

 

· The parent or legal guardian must present acceptable identification (see the identification requirements in the “Adult Card” section below) at the time of application for the juvenile’s card.

 

· Parents or guardians are responsible for supervising the juvenile’s use of the card. Library staff does not oversee a juvenile’s material selection or borrowing.

 

· An Internet permission form must be filled out for every person under the age of 18 in person by a parent or guardian.

 

Adult Cards

 

· Ages 15 and over will receive an “Adult” status library card.

 

· Proper identification must be presented at the time of application. The preferred form of identification is a photo ID. (Or, if no photo identification is available, TWO forms of identification, one with current address, will be accepted. The library staff determines the acceptability of identification.)

 

All Borrowers

 

· Must be in good standing to continue to use their library card. “Good standing” is defined as not having fines or fees of $5.00 or more on the card.
