Using the Library
Getting a Library Card
If you are over 18, you need to bring in a current photo ID. Acceptable ID would include a driver's license, state-issued ID card, passport, immigration card, etc. and it must be current (not expired). Out-of-state driver's licenses and foreign passports are acceptable. You must also bring along a current, non-expired second piece of documentation to verify your Broward County address. Examples of this include:
- FPL bill
- Utility bill
- Vehicle registration
- Voter's registration
If you are 16-17 years old, you are able to get a library card with your school photo ID and proof of local address. Children under 16 must come in with a parent or guardian to get a library card. You can get your own card as soon as you can print your full name.
