Library Cards

Applying for a Library Card

The SAILS card allows full access to all library services and must be present for all library transactions.

We require that adults (18 and older) present a picture ID with current address. A parent or guardian’s proof of residency and signature are necessary for young adults (ages 12-17).

Charge for replacement cards: $1.00

Temporary Cards – For internet use only

Temporary cards are available to patrons who only wish to use the internet stations. ID is required and the card is valid for one year.

Children 12 and under

To get a card for any child aged 12 and under, a parent or guardian must present identification and proof of the child’s address. The parent or guardian will be required to fill out and sign a library card application. This adult is legally responsible for following the rules and regulations of the Taunton Public Library, and will be responsible for all fees and charges made against this card. An additional signature is required if the parent or guardian wishes to allow Internet access to the minor child while in the library. The application will be kept in library files.

This card must be presented any time the child wishes to check out library materials or log on to an Internet computer.
