question of the month

Can my child get a library card? 



September is Library Card Sign Up Month!

Juvenile cards are issued to any child,
birth through age 17, with a parent or legal guardian present to co-sign the application.  Children with their own Driver’s License or Learner’s Permit do not need a parent present to co-sign for the Library card.

To get a library card for your child, you need valid identification showing your name and current address.  Oak Ridge city residents and real property holders are eligible for cards at no cost.  Real property holders living outside Oak Ridge must present a current tax receipt.

People living outside Oak Ridge may purchase a year's membership for $45.  Children may use the nonresident card if they bring it to the Library. 

All first time Library Card holders are limited for one year to six items per checkout.
