Get carded!

Any person who lives in Mendocino County is eligible to receive a library card free of charge. It’s easy.  To get your card just stop by the library with a valid picture ID and proof of residency (a piece of mail, car registration, anything that shows your name and current address), fill out a card application and we’ll get your borrowing ability started in no time.  Minors under 18 require a parent or guardian’s signature along with proof of residency.
