Any individual who can sign his/her full name and has no previous derogatory borrowing record, and who can verify his/her mailing address may apply for a library card.

A new patron may check out up to three items as soon as the application is approved.

No patron may check out items from the Library on any card other than his/her own.

  1. A Photo ID AND
  2. Mail with a current postmark showing your address OR
  3. A City utility bill showing the current date OR
  4. A valid library card from a New Mexico Library
To clarify, you must have item 1, a photo ID and any one of the other three items to be issued a Library Card.
