Get a Library Card
Mason County residents or students of educational institutions in Mason County can get their free library card by bringing something to the Library to verify their address: for example, a driver’s license, state identification card, or other similar document with photo ID. A photo will be added to patron records to protect their account.
Nonresidents must supply an address confirmation document and pay an annual fee of $5.00 which covers immediate members of ? household. Children must be 5 years of age to receive a library card and parents are responsible for all items checked out.
