Apply for a library card

All Tennessee residents are eligible for a library card at no cost. To apply, you may complete the electronic application at home using this link or at the library.  Then, simply present proof of your identity and current address at the front desk to receive your physical card. The parent/legal guardian and the juvenile must both be present to receive their physical library card after completing the electronic application.

Parents are responsible for anything their child checks out, fines, damages, and lost items and as such are expected to monitor their children's activities.


Individuals that live outside the state may obtain a library card at an annual cost of $10.00 for adults 17+ and $5.00 for children. The parent/legal guardian and the juvenile must both be present and a valid ID must be presented to receive card after completing the electronic application.
