How can I get a library card?
The Library primarily serves the residents of Rowlett and surrounding communities; however, anyone who is a Texas resident is eligible for a library card.

For adults and young adults (17 years and older):

  • Present a valid driver's license (Texas or other state-issued), Texas Personal ID, or Military ID

  • AND
  • Proof of Texas residency (such as a utility bill, lease agreement, imprinted checks, etc.) if not on the above

  • Fill out a brief application form and sign the card

  • In signing the card, you accept responsibility for all items checked out.

For children under 17:

  • A parent or legal guardian must present valid identification (above) and proof of residency

  • Complete an application form and sign for the child's card

  • This adult assumes responsibility for all items checked out on the child's card.

If you discover that your card is lost or missing, contact the Library immediately so that staff can render the card inactive. Replacement cards are available at a cost of $1.00.
