Who can use the library? How do I get a card?

Anyone who lives in Northeast Kansas may get a card. If you already have a card from another library in northeast Kansas that participates in the Next search catalog (see below), then your card works here, too. There is no charge for a card even if you don’t live in the Rossville Township.
We encourage children to get their own library card. If the child is under 18, a parent or legal guardian whose own card is in good standing must sign the application as a guarantor.
You may fill out a short form at the library to get a card–it only takes a few minutes! Please make sure you have picture ID and a separate proof of address.
