Getting Your Library Card
We are excited that you are interested in applying for a library card with the Siloam Springs Public Library!
You need to be 18 years or older to apply for a library card. Children over the age of five are allowed to have their own library as long as a parent or a legal guardian has their own library card. Please also note that the owner of the library card has the sole information about the materials they check out. A waiver must be filled out and signed by the cardholder if they want information released to someone else. (Parents can request their children sign a waiver giving them permission to view materials they have checked out).
You will need to show 2 forms of ID when your application is processed at the library:
Current Driver’s License or another state or federal issued Photo ID card
Proof of current physical address (checkbook, utility bill, receipt, etc.)
[P.O. Box addresses must be verified with proof of current physical address]
You can complete your form online with e-signatures or fill out the form at the library. If you fill out the form online and submit it, bring two forms of ID listed above to complete the process of your application.
