Policy regarding library cards issued by the Perry Public Library

To obtain a valid library card, an eligible borrower fills out an application form whereby they agree to obey all rules and regulations of the Library. The application includes:

  • a full written signature
  • permanent home address
  • social security or driver's license number
  • birth date
  • telephone number


Two forms of ID are needed to validate information on the Library Card Application.

1) A photo ID such as a Driver's License, and

2) Mail with their address on it that corresponds to the address on the photo ID.


Children who have not reached seventh grade must have a parent or guardian sign their application card.

Full library privileges will be granted upon receipt of a library card following a probationary period. To receive a card, a person must be able to verify their address.

Library cards are issued for one year. Upon expiration, the card may be renewed after registration information is verified, and charges, if any, are paid.
