How Do I Get a Library Card?

Any resident of Iowa can get a library card.  You need to bring an unexpired photo ID with your current address, or a photo ID and proof of your current address, to the library to sign up for a library card.  Non-residents can purchase a library card for an annual fee.  Certain online resources, such as Bridges and Hoopla, are only available to residents of the library's official service area which is Fort Madison and rural Lee County.  If you have any questions, please call the library at (319) 372-5721.
