How to Obtain a Library Card

You will need 2 documents to obtain a card:

  • A recent piece of mail that shows your name and current address. If you recently moved we can mail a postcard to your address. Once you receive the postcard in the mail you can bring that in as your proof of residency.
  • A drivers license or a photo I.D. Anyone under 18 years of age will have to obtain a card with their parent present and their parent will need the 2 documents listed.

Bring these documents into the library and fill out an application. The first library card is free. If lost, stolen, or damaged it will cost $3.00 dollars for a replacement of the second library card.

For the first month you can get a maximum of 2 items on an adult card, and 2 books on a juvenile card. After the initial month, you may check out a maximum of 10 books and 5 movies on an adult card, and 10 books on a juvenile card. Audio books, books on CD, and Playaways count as a "book" at checkout.

Out of County residents are welcome.

Every child will have books of their very own, at no cost to you, thanks to Governor Bredesen and the State of Tennessee, Gibson County Adult Literacy Council, other generous sponsors and Dolly Parton.

HOW IT WORKS:
Each month a new, carefully selected book will be mailed in your child's name directly to your home. He/She can look forward to new and exciting reading adventures from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library until he/she turns five years old as long as you remain a resident of Gibson County.

WHAT ARE MY RESPONSIBILITIES?
1. Be a resident of Gibson County
2. Submit and official registration form, completely filled out by parent or guardian (form must be approved and on file with Gibson County Adult Literacy Council)
3. Notify Gibson County Adult Literacy Council any time your address changes. Books are mailed to the address listed on the officail registration form. If the child's address changes, you must follow the steps above regarding a change of residence.
4. Read with your child!

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE BOOKS?
Eight to ten weeks after your registration form has been received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of Gibson County.
