At what age can I sign my child up for a library card?

With the parent/legal guardian present, a child can be signed up for a library card at any age.

To sign a child up for a library card, the parent/legal guardian must provide proof of residence through one of the following options:

  • A valid Texas ID
  • Lease
  • Bill
  • A piece of mail that has a USPS watermark over the stamp
  • Insurance

These items (except for the valid Texas ID) can also be provided electronically on a smart device.
