Collection Use

A person 18 years or older and living in New Hanover or Pender counties may apply for a Community Patron Library Card. Area high school students under the age of 17 are also eligible for a Community Patron Library Card when sponsored by a parent or guardian. Terms of this sponsorship are described in the Parental Authorization for High School Students form .

A photo ID and two pieces of documentation showing proof of residency are required. Any two of the following will qualify as long as they have matching addresses: a driver’s license, utility bill, or tax bill. The photo ID may serve as one proof of residency if it indicates a New Hanover County or Pender County address. If it does not, it may serve only as the photo ID, and two additional pieces of documentation must be used to show proof of residency.

Community Patrons must apply in person for a Library Card and may check out a total of 5 items at a time. Only one DVD may be checked out at a time.
