How to Obtain a Library Card

Applicants for North Las Vegas library cards must show a valid, government issued picture identification and proof of current local residence. A post office box can be used for a mailing address provided the Library District also has your residence address on file. For applicants under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must be present with the applicant and sign the application on behalf of the minor. By signing the application the parent or legal guardian accepts financial responsibility for the materials checked out by the minor child and acknowledges that it is his or her responsibility to guide the selection of materials checked out by that minor child.

The first library card is free. Because the card owner is responsible for any item checked out on the card, be sure to notify the library immediately if the card is lost or stolen. There is a $1.00 charge to replace a lost card.
