If you already have a card but it has expired, please contact your nearest branch or bookmobile to update your library card. If you have lost your library card, you may obtain a new one by visiting your nearest branch or bookmobile in person and paying a one dollar ($1.00) card replacement fee.

The deposit is refunded when the temporary card is returned to the library.  Public access computers and WiFi are available to all visitors free of charge.
