How Do I Get a Library Card?

Le Mars and Rural Plymouth County residents are entitled to a free Full Access library card.

To obtain a library card, all individuals (13 years or older) should bring a valid photo ID. Examples of acceptable identification include driver's license, state/federal-issued ID card or school ID card/school report card. If you do not have a photo ID or your photo ID does not include your current address, please bring a second form of identification with your address. Examples of acceptable documents for address verification (other than a photo ID) are current utility or phone bills, vehicle registration, voter registration card, apartment lease, and official government documents.

All Iowa residents, if your home library participates in the Iowa Open Access Program, are eligible to check out materials at the Le Mars Public Library. Access to some digital resources is limited, for example Le Mars Public Library’s enhanced Bridges eBook collection.  Please bring a valid ID with your name and current address and a current Library card from a participating library. Counties and cities must provide funding to a public library so their residents are eligible for an Open Access library card.

Out-of-State residents may purchase a Full Access-Paid Library card for $40.00 per year.  This rate is equivalent to the Le Mars per capita property tax support rate.  Full Access-Paid Library cards will have access to the print and digital collections including the enhanced Bridges eBook collection.
