  /  Services in the Library

Free library cards are issued to residents of North Branford who can show proof of residency (usually a driver’s license or business mail with a North Branford address). These cards expire after 3 years and may be renewed at no cost. There is no replacement charge for a lost card. There is no minimum age to get a library card, but approval from a parent or guardian is required for children under 14 to obtain a card. A child must be present to receive a card. The borrower or guardian is responsible for the card’s security, for any material checked out, and for any charges incurred. Residents of other towns must obtain a card from the town where they live, and are then welcome to use our libraries.
