Library Cards

Getting a library card is easy! 
To borrow materials from our library or use our computers, it is necessary to have a valid Wilmer Library card. Children five years or older may have a library card in their name. A parent or legal guardian MUST sign all applications for library cards for children. A valid Texas driver’s license or Texas ID card MUST be presented with application. (Children applying for cards must present a driver’s license or ID card of the person signing the application.) Youth fourteen (14) and under will need to have parental or guardian permission to access the Internet and/or be seated at an Internet workstation.
