Library Cards

Getting a library card is easy! 

To borrow materials from our library, it is necessary to have a valid Wilmer Library card. 

Every resident of Wilmer is eligible for a free Library card account regardless of age. Those who own property, own a business, work, or attend school in Wilmer are also eligible.

1. Photo identification and proof of current physical/employment address (such as a utility bill, paystub or other piece of USPS delivered mail) are required. 

2. Acceptable forms of identification include:

  • Driver’s license
  • Federal, state, or local government ID card
  • Passport
  • School ID card
  • U.S. Military card
  • Permanent Resident Card / Alien Registration Receipt Card / Consulate ID

3. Patrons must present a current ID to obtain a library card and accounts must be in good standing (i.e., not delinquent) before a card is renewed. Library Cards must be renewed every 3 years.
