Senior Membership (65+)

Free Senior Memberships are available to any residents 65 years or older.  While the membership is free, it still needs to be renewed each year to remain active, and the cardholder is responsible for any fines or losses.

Family Membership

We know families come in all shapes and sizes, so for our membership, a family is defined as all persons living at a single address.  Buying a family membership entitles you to ONE library card that all family members are welcome to share.  "But how can we share only one card?!" you ask.  It's simple.  When you purchase your membership, we'll ask you to list the names of everyone you want to be able to access the membership and include them on the account.  We can also photocopy the card so that everyone has their own copy.  Remember, membership must be renewed each year to remain active. The primary named cardholder is responsible for any fines or losses.

Institutional Membership

An institution is a business, school or organization, usually with multiple users having access to the benefits of a membership. This membership needs to be renewed each year to remain active and the institution’s head (person named on the account) is responsible for fines and losses.
