Library Card

Who can get a library card?

Enid Public Library provides access to all Enid & Garfield County residents. A librarian will need to see a valid photo ID as well as proof of mailing address.

Examples of valid photo ID:

  • Driver's License or state issued Identification Card;
  • Passport;
  • Military ID;
  • Other forms of ID.

Examples of mailing address:

  • Current on your ID;
  • Utility bill;
  • Car registration;
  • Other digital documents or bills.

If unable to provide proof of mailing address, the library will provide a verification postcard that may be filled out at the library service desk. The postcard will be mailed to you. Upon receipt of the postcard, bring postcard with you into the library and a library card will be issued at that time.

Signing Up Children

Those under 18 will need a legal parent/guardian to sign them up for a library card. The parent/guardian will need to provide a photo ID and proof of a current mailing address.

There is no age limit required to get your first library card!
