How to Get a Library Card
Library cards are available to California residents, with a photo ID and proof of current address. Minors, under the age of 18, are required to have a parent or legal guardian present to be issued a library card.
Fines & Fees
All fines are 20 cents per item, per day. Fines & fees can be paid by visiting the library in-person (cash, check, & credit card are accepted), or through the online payment system here. Digital items do not accrue fines or fees.
How many physical items can I borrow?
Library cards may checkout a total of 50 physical items at a time. New library cards, for the first month, may checkout 10 physical items at a time. A maximum of 15 physical holds may be placed at a time.
Is there a difference between physical and digital items?
Yes. Your library card gives you access to 10 digital items, at a time, for loan (eBook and/or eAudiobook). A maximum of 10 holds may be placed on items in the digital library. To access digital books or digital audiobooks, please click here.
