How to Get a Library Card

To get a library card, you need to be a resident of Bondurant or anywhere in an Iowa Municipality or County that provides or contracts for library services. Current identification and proof of address are necessary to receive a card. There is no charge for a library card.
Applicants Younger Than 10:  children who fit the residence requirements and are at least 5 years old are eligible for a library card according to the discretion of their parents or legal guardian. Parental signature is required for persons under the age of 10. Responsibility for a child’s selection and return of materials, and any fines or charges accrued on the child’s card is held by the parent or guardian of the child. Cards for children under the age of 10 will not be issued to parents/guardians if the child is not present.
