Getting A Library Card
FRVPLD Library Card

To obtain a card for a person not yet 15, the minor and his/her parent or legal guardian must be present. ID in the parentís name will suffice. Possible IDs include driverís license, state ID, motor vehicle registration or renewal, checkbook, current real estate tax or utility bill, credit card bill or a piece of mail addressed to the patron and not postmarked more than 30 days previous to the request for a new card.

2. Library cards will be issued upon request and proof of current address up to 15 minutes before closing.

3. Please keep your library card with you to check out materials or use the computers. You can check your account via the Internet by going to "My Account" through Enterprise, our web catalog.
