How do I get a library card?

Individuals age 5 and older who are residents of Johnston, residents of contracting communities, or residents of areas with libraries participating in Iowa’s Open Access program may apply for a library card. Applicants under the age of 14 must have his/her application signed by a parent or guardian who must be present at the time the card is issued.

Applicants 18 & Older

Applicants 18 and older must present a driver’s license or other government issued photo ID that includes proof of his/her current street address. Applicants whose ID does not include their current street address, must also present a piece of mail or other document that includes their name and current street address.

Applicants 14-17*

Applicants 14-17 years of age do not need to present a photo ID but must present a document that includes their name and current street address. A photo ID with proof of street address from a parent or guardian who is present at the time the card is issued is sufficient if the child’s documentation is unavailable.

Applicants Younger Than 14*

A photo ID with proof of street address from a parent or guardian is required for applicants under 14.

*Cards for children will not be issued to parents/guardians if the child is not present.
