Your Card

Getting a card, renewing materials, placing holds, etc

Who can get a card?

Anyone in the state of Texas.

How to Get Your Card
 You must have a valid government issued photo i.d. along with two different forms of proof of current address when applying for a library number.  A driver's license with a current address may serve as the photo i.d. and one of the proofs of address. Children are encouraged to have their own library number, but they must have a guardian/parent with them. 

Everyone applying for membership must give a Contact Person's Name and Phone Number of someone Not living in the household with them.

Borrowing Limits

Initial checkout for new patrons is a maximum of three items only, one of which can be a DVD. Established patrons may check-out 5 books and 3 DVDs at a time. Patrons can check-out books for two weeks and DVDs for one week.

Placing Holds

Patrons may request to place a hold on a book, DVD, or audio CD. To place a hold, the patron will need to let the library volunteer know the name/title of requested item, along with a current telephone number. A library volunteer will then call the patron when their hold request is available for pick-up.

Renewing Your Borrowed Items
At this time, the only way to renew items is to call (936) 344-2198 and give them your library #, last and first name. The library volunteer will then renew your items over the phone and let you know the new due date.
