Examples of valid ID include:
Driver’s License, utility bill, vehicle registration, deed or lease, tax bill, recent mail ( only one is acceptable) check book, or voter registration card. Parents/guardians who would like to apply for a card for their children must present the same ID requirements OR present their own, valid library card as proof of residency. Library cards expire every three years.
