Get a Library Card

If you live or work in Northeast Tennessee, you may apply for a free library card that will grant you access to all our materials and services. Children 3 to 15 can apply with a parent or legal guardian, and Non-residents may also apply for a card with an added fee.

To get your library card, bring 2 items:

  • Current photo identification that shows your birth date.
  • An additional form of address verification that shows your name, address, and a date within the past 90 days–such as a utility bill.


You can preregister by clicking the link below. Be sure to tell the clerk at the Circulation Desk that you preregistered to ensure the best service.

First time borrowers are limited to 2 items at a time, which increases to 20 items per checkout after the introductory period.

A library card is required to borrow materials and use the computers, so be sure you bring it with you every time you visit. Replacement cards are available for a small fee.
