Getting a Library Card during COVID-19

Our library is still in the process of curbside service only, so obtaining a library card is a little different than normal. Below are the steps to obtaining one:

You will need to come through the back entrance (corner of Water St. & 3rd St.) with your photo ID to fill out a registration card, you can knock on the door or call 870-793-8814 when you arrive. Mon-Thurs 9-6, Fri 9-5, or Sat 9-1. You will be able to use your library card number for e-books immediately if you let us know you want to check out e-books. We will mail your card to you to verify your address. As soon as you receive your card you can start checking books out. If you live outside of Independence County, the fee is $10 per year.

Library cards will be issued at five (5) years of age.  If under age 17, a parent's signature is required.  All applicants ages 17 and over must present photo identification before being issued a library card. Library cards will be mailed to the patron to insure the correct address is entered into our system. A photo may be taken of patron on the day of registration and stored on his/her computerized account.
