Get a Library Card

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

  • a full written signature
  • permanent home address (bring a valid form for proof of address such as a piece of mail)
  • photo identification such as a driver's license number or other identification number from photo ID.
  • birth date
  • telephone number

Minor children must have a parent or guardian sign their application form.

Full library privileges will be granted upon receipt of a library card following a probationary period.

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

Initial library cards are free, but there is a charge for a replacement card.  The current charge is $4.

Cards are to be used by the card holder only.
