Library Cards

Getting a library card is easy!

If you live in Polk City, stop in to the library with your photo ID and a piece of mail you’ve received that shows your current physical address (no PO Boxes) and fill out a quick form. That’s all there is to it.

If you live in a community other than Polk City, bring the same items along as well as your library card from your home library. 

If you live in a community other than Polk City that does not have its own home library, you must first get a library card from the city that your city council has contracted with to provide library services to your community. Then bring that library card, your photo ID and your piece of mail to apply for a card with us.
