CIRCULATION OF MATERIALS
A library card is free to any resident of the Arrowhead Library System. To obtain a library card, apply in person at the library. You must show a photo ID and proof of current address. If you are under sixteen, you must come with a parent or guardian who can show a photo ID. Library cards expire after three years but can be renewed at any time at no cost to the patron.
If you lose your card, notify the library as soon as possible. You are responsible for anything checked out on your card. If you have forgotten your library card, you can still check out materials if you present a photo ID.
