How do I get a library card?

Library cards are free to anyone who resides in the Highland Park Independent School District. Go to the library's service desk to apply for one. A card gives the applicant checkout privileges at the library. The card is valid for three years. By signing the back of the card, the library patron agrees to accept responsibility for use of the card and to follow all library policies. For adults 18 and over, library cards are obtained by presenting a valid photo ID and proof of address. Those under age 18 must be connected to an adult sponsor (parent or guardian) and be able to sign or print their name. The adult sponsor must be a registered borrower.
