To obtain a resident library card, the applicant must have:
- A form of photo identification
- A form of documentation proving residency or ownership of property or business within the city limits of Hailey, such as a utility bill, lease agreement or tax notice. A driver’s license will not be accepted as proof of residency
- A current mailing address (general delivery is not a valid mailing address)
All forms of identification used for proof of residency must have name and current physical address listed. Resident borrowers’ cards will be valid for two years from date of issuance and will be updated bi-annually upon presentation of current identification. If there is a change in address, proof of new residency must be presented before card will be updated.
If you are new to the Hailey Public Library, you may register for a temporary library card which will allow you to check out two items at any one time. This card is for those 14 years of age and older. A valid ID is required for those over 18 years of age or older. A current mailing address is also required (general delivery is not a valid mailing address). The temporary card is valid for 30 days and may not be renewed.
To obtain a non-resident card photo identification and a current mailing address (general delivery is not a valid mailing address) must be presented before the library borrower’s card is issued. Payment of non-resident fee by an individual allows all persons in that individual’s household to obtain a library borrower’s card. Membership fee waiver forms for financial hardship circumstances are available at the front desk and will be presented to the Library Board for consideration at each regular monthly board meeting. Non-Resident fees are as follows:
- $17.00 for three months
- $34.00 for six months
- $68.00 for a year
Sr Non-Resident Card
An individual card is available to all non-residents 62 years and older at a discounted senior rate of $21.50 per year. Photo identification and a current mailing address must be presented at the time the borrower’s card is issued.
