Get a Library Card

All you need is a valid photo ID and proof of your current address to get a library card with CCPL!

Stop by one of our branches to complete a library card application. Applications are now available in Spanish!

  • Photo ID with current address
  • Photo ID and another item showing the patron resides at the given address (recently postmarked mail, imprinted personal checks, property tax receipts, or other substantiated documents).
  • A post office box is not considered a valid address to determine eligibility. A post office box may, however, be used as a mailing address in the patron record.

Cards for Minors

Juvenile borrowers (under 18 years of age) may obtain a library card in one of two ways:

  • A parent or legal guardian may present acceptable identification and sign for the juvenile to receive full borrowing privileges
  • The juvenile may present proof of name (textbook, school ID, mail, etc.) and receive limited borrowing privileges

Teacher Cards

Teacher Cards are available to those working in adult education, K-12 public/private schools, preschools, daycare centers and organizations working with individuals with special needs. A Teacher Card is in addition to a personal library card and is for professional needs and educational purposes.

Benefits of Teacher Cards include:

  • No overdue fines for items checked out
  • Access to reliable online databases
  • Online practice tests for AP exams and college entrance exams

Users can receive books for the classroom, have children’s librarians visit their classrooms, or arrange for a tour of the library. Teacher Cards are not restricted to Campbell County teachers or residents. Just bring in current proof of employment or verification of homeschool participation to receive your card.
