Minors With Two Residences

Recognizing that a wide variety of family structures exist, there are some circumstances where minor children (under age 17) may have two separate library cards, one for each residence. This includes:

  • Minor children who are members of separated families and who reside at two households. Quite often in these circumstances, the cards are kept at the separate households and different parents take responsibility for control of each card.
  • Minor children in foster homes. A child may have one card for the home address and one card for the foster family address (please see Foster Child Card policy)

If second parent or guardian elects to take responsibility for library materials on behalf of the child, the parent should bring ID and proof of address to the library and complete the application. Child should be present.
