Library Cards

Library cards are offered to the general public at no charge. Patrons must apply in person with a valid Texas ID or driver's license with the current mailing address. In the event that your library card is lost or misplaced, a replacement can be obtained for a nominal fee of $2.00.


Item Limits

Adults can borrow up to 10 books, 4 DVDs, 4 audio books, and 4 ILLs at a time. Children can borrow up to 4 books, 1 DVD, 1 audio book, and 3 ILLs at a time.

Loan Term

The standard loan term for books and audio books is 2 weeks (14 days). For DVDs, the loan term is 1 week (7 days).


In the event that an item is returned after the due date, fines will be charged at a rate of 5 cents per day for each overdue item.


Library material can be renewed twice, extending the loan period by an additional 2 weeks each time. Renewals allow for an extended borrowing period and continued enjoyment of the selected media. Items that are on reserve for other patrons may not be renewed.

Renewals can be made over the phone at 361-275-2864

Interlibrary loans (ILLs) may have different loan terms and renewal policies depending on the lending library's guidelines. Our staff will provide specific information regarding ILLs when a request is made.
