You need to have official identification showing your name and permanent address. We won't make copies of it, but we do need to see the following:
- Your Michigan driver’s license or State of Michigan ID card with current residential address. (Post Office boxes are not accepted as valid addresses.) -or-
- A picture ID with proof of residency shown by two of the following items: utility bill; copy of lease or mortgage; copy of property tax statement; rent receipt showing address; car registration. (At least one of these items must be dated within the past 12 months.)
If you are under 18 years of age and are not an emancipated minor, you must have the signature of your parent or guardian on the application cards in order to be issued a card. If your parent or guardian is not a current ROPL library card holder, they must show the same proofs of residency listed above.
You can get a jump-start on the process with our online application here: https://www.romi.gov/FormCenter/Library-6/Library-Card-Registration-Form-48 and then bring your proof of address when you stop by to get your card.
