Library Cards

Getting Your Library Card

A library account in good standing is always required to check out material or use the public computers. Stop at the check out desk to get a library card. Once you are a registered user, you may check out items with a Texas driver's license if desired but must use your library card to log in to the public computers.

When obtaining a library card, remember:
  • Library cards will not be issued the last 15 minutes of the work day.
  • Users must bring proof of identity (photo ID such as a Texas driver's license) and proof of current mailing address and current residence. There is no fee for Rockwall County residents to open a library account. There is a $50 per household annual fee for non-residents of Rockwall County to obtain a card. All library cards must be renewed annually, which requires presenting proof of current address in person.

  • Children and teens under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian with a Rockwall County Library account in good standing to obtain a library card. Persons under 18 years of age need to have a parent or guardian sign to give permission for Internet access.
  • Library users must supply a working telephone number at registration: preferably both a home and a business number. The library must b notified of any change in contact information.
