Using the Library

Meeting Rooms

Public access to meeting room spaces has resumed as of April 12, 2021 with some modifications due to COVID-19.

Masks must be worn and social distancing maintained. Parties using the rooms will be expected to spray and wipe down surfaces they have used with cleaning materials that have been made available in each space.

Get a Library Card

People who live, work, or study in Boyle County may obtain a library card. People who live in a county that is a member of our consortium may obtain a card. A photo ID and proof of current address is required to receive a new or replacement card. Replacement cards cost $1.00. For your protection, report a lost or stolen card immediately. You are responsible for all items charged to your card.

Minors (under age 18) may receive a library card with parent or guardian signature.


We gladly accept volunteers depending on the need. Please see the Circulation Desk to apply.

Lost or Stolen Cards

If you have lost your library card and wish to replace it, the cost is $1.00, plus any fines on the existing card in the system.

If you are under the age of 18, you will once again need to have a parent or guardian to sign for you.

If you have moved since you had your other card, you will need to bring in proof of address (post marked mail to your current address)
