Library Cards

Cards are free to residents – all you need is verification of your address. Children under the age of 16 can get a card with a parent or guardian’s identification and signature.

Your card may be used only at the Wilton Manors Library. When your card expires, we will re-verify your contact information and renew your card. There is a $3 charge to replace lost, damaged, or stolen cards.

How do I get a Library card?

Getting a Wilton Manors Library card is easy, and it’s free. Applications are available at the Library. Additional requirements are as follows:

An adult must complete and sign an application and present:

  • A current valid ID with photo, name, and Broward County address (driver’s license, Florida state ID, etc.), OR;
  • A photo ID and another form of identification which must include name and Broward County address. Accepted forms of ID include: personal check; current telephone, electric, or cable bill; mail with a current postmark (within 30 days) or voter registration card. (Post office box numbers are not accepted.)
  • Children five years of age or older may obtain their own library card only after one parent or guardian has obtained a card.
  • Persons sixteen years or older may obtain an adult library card with proper identification.
  • New cardholders may check out up to 2 items the first time they use their library card.

Replacing Your Library Card

If a library card is lost, please report it to the Library immediately. A library cardholder is responsible for all materials, fines, and fees charged against his or her library card until its loss is reported to the Library. If a library card is lost, the cardholder must pay a $3 replacement fee, and present current valid ID to get a new card.
