You can get a library card if you have a current photo ID for example a current Maryland Driver's license, learner's permit, provisional license or school-issued photo ID. If you have changed your address, a Motor Vehicle Administration update must accompany your driver's license or identification card.
 

If you do not have a current photo ID then a parent or guardian, 18 years or older, must be present to present a current photo ID and to sign the library card.
 

Checking out DVDs and Video Games:
Parental permission and a signature is required at the time of registration in order for children to use their library cards to check out any DVDs and video games that are not rated for children. If the parent or guardian does not sign and authorize permission, only DVDs and video games for children may be borrowed.
