How to Get a Library Card

All visitors can receive their first library card free of charge. 


A valid, government-issued ID and proof of address are required. All patrons under the age of 17 must have a parent or legal guardian sign them up for a card. Any form of ID that has expired is not considered valid. The following are acceptable forms of identification:

  • Consulate Issued ID
  • Current School ID
  • Military Issued ID
  • Passport
  • State Issued Driver’s License
  • State Issued Identification Card


If the patron’s correct address is not listed on their form of ID, valid proof of residency is also required. The following are acceptable forms for proof of address:

  • Current Vehicle, home, renter or property insurance policy
  • Utility bill/statement dated within the last 60 days
  • Report card or proof of student enrollment

Digital Library Cards

Tarrant County residents who do not have a library card can request a digital library card by signing up at our catalog website here. For step-by-step instructions click here.

Replacement Cards

Replacement cards cost $10. You will receive 2 copies of your new card - one for your wallet and one for your key-chain. Both cards work the same, and either can be presented to check out materials. If you find your old library card, you can keep it or turn it in at the front desk to use as a spare in the event that you need a replacement again. No charge is issued to switch back to an older library card.

Renewing Your Card

Residents of White Settlement must renew their library cards every 2 years. Non-Residents’ cards must be renewed every year. Visit the library in person or renew online by logging into the catalog website here, clicking "My Account," then clicking "Renew your account online." You will need to verify your phone number and address to renew.
