Application for a Library card shall be made by presenting suitable identification. Such identification may be a valid driver’s license, a Delaware State identification card available from Delaware Department of Motor Vehicles, a valid U.S. passport, a valid automobile registration, a recent rent receipt or utility bill or any equivalent document showing the person’s name and address.
For minors, such identification may consist of their parent’s or guardian identification. This adult will be required to sign the application acknowledging responsibility for damage to, return of, or cost of replacement of materials borrowed by a minor.
The Library reserves the right to refuse a card to those with insufficient identification. The person to whom the card is issued must sign the application and must assume responsibility for returning all materials. The user will be responsible for his/her card. If the card is lost or stolen, the user is responsible for all items charged to it until the loss is reported. Each user is responsible for informing the Library of any change of address or telephone number.
Expiration of Cards – Library cards must be renewed annually in person with proof of current address. All fines and fees must be paid at the time the card is renewed.
Cost of Library Cards – Obtaining a Library card for most residents is free. However, fees are assessed for cards for non-residents, out-of-state residents (not Delmar Maryland school district residents), and special residents. The cost to replace lost Library cards will be $2.00 for each replacement.
