Henderson County residents and those who work, own property, or attend school in the county can acquire a library card at no charge. Applicants must appear in person at one of the library branches and present proper identification, a picture ID with a current address. A parent or Guardian must be present for a child under 14 to be issued a card. Replacement fee for a lost card is $2. A non-resident may purchase a card for $20 per year.

Check Out Policies
In order to conduct library transactions, patrons must present a library card or be able to supply the library card number along with the PIN or password. In the event that a card is lost, a replacement card may be purchased for $2.00.

Library cards stored on smartphones are accepted, but additional account information may be requested to verify identity to prevent any unauthorized account use. This is especially important since the Library uses a debt collect service to recover items and fees (more information).
If picking up items for a family member, that family member's card must be present, and the PIN or password for that account must be entered.

Items checked out can be returned to any of the branches in the Henderson County Library system. Reserves can be placed on all items (except magazines and some technology resources).
