Who can get a library card?

Library cards are available to anyone who lives or owns property in:

Temporary residents staying longer than one month but less than six months may get a Visitor Card with a five-item checkout limit.

Individuals without a residence who can present a Photo ID and either a mailing address or phone number, may be issued a “Limited Checkout” library card. This card allows the placement of holds, access to the public computers, the check out of five items, and has an expiration date of 12 months (which can be renewed).

If photo ID is not available, a “PC Only” card may be issued.  This card allows access to our public computers, has a 12 month expiration (which can be renewed), but does not include check out privileges.

*Our service area includes all of King County except forSeattle, Yarrow Point, and Hunts Point.
