Services - Get a Library Card

Crook County Library cards are free to Crook County residents. If you're under the age of 17, you'll need to have a parent or legal guardian complete your library card application in-person at the library.

To apply for a Crook County Library card, you will need a government-issued photo ID and proof of your home address in Crook County. If your photo ID does not have your current Crook County address on it, you will need to present additional proof of address documentation as outlined in our Library Card Policy.

You can also apply for a library card online and place up to 5 holds in the library catalog. You will need to present your photo ID and proof of address to in-person at the library to complete your application and receive your card.

If you live outside Crook, Deschutes, or Jefferson County--or if you are visiting the tri-county area for more than a few weeks--you will need to purchase a non-resident library card. Non-resident cards entitle users to the same privileges as a resident library cardholder except where, due to contractual reasons, access to databases or applications is unavailable. Non-resident cards are $10 for 1 month, $25 for 3 months and $85 for 12 months. 

If you are in temporary or transitional housing or are homeless, you may apply for a 90-day courtesy card. Courtesy card holders may check out 3 items at a time and use the public computers. When your courtesy card expires, you may request an extension, purchase a non-resident card, or apply for a library card.

Deschutes and Jefferson County residents are not eligible for Crook County Library cards. You may use your Deschutes Public Library or Jefferson County Library card to check out materials and use the public computers at Crook County Library.
