How Do I...?
How do I get a library card?
Adults - Any Kansas resident may obtain a Salina Public Library card at no charge. To be issued a card, present a picture ID with current address at the circulation desk. If your ID does not have your current address, please bring some proof of your address, such as a utility bill.
Children - Parents or guardians must complete an authorization form for a child to get a library card. The child's card may be used in the children's department only. A child may obtain an adult card with parental signature at any time. An adult card may be obtained without parental permission at age 14. Parents/guardians are responsible for materials checked out on their child's card.
You may also apply for a library card online.
Kansas Library Card - Get your Kansas Library Card at the adult reference or youth services desk or contact the reference desk at 825-4624. The Kansas Library Card is free to all Kansas residents.
Library materials may be renewed one time (for the same amount of time as the original checkout), by phone, on the web or in person.
You may place a hold on items that are checked out by other patrons, that are on the shelves, or that are still being processed at the reference desk, on the library catalog website or by phone.
