Alton Public Library Card

  • Every patron needs to have a library card to access computers or to borrow materials from the library.
  • Library cards may be obtained by completing a borrower registration card.  The card must include a telephone number and a reference name, address and telephone number.  Anyone under the age of 18 must include a parent's name, address and telephone number (home/work)as a reference.
  • A card bearing the patron's name and an assigned library number will then be issued.
  • This card should be presented each time a loan is made.
  • Each patron is responsible for all materials borrowed on his/her card.  We recommend every member of a family have their own card.
  • New patrons will be on a probation period of 6 months after signing up for a library card.  A new patron is only allowed to check out two items per card.
