How do I get a Library card?
Getting a Wilton Manors Library card is easy, and it’s free. Applications are available at the Library. Additional requirements are as follows:
An adult must complete and sign an application and present:
• A current valid ID with photo, name, and Broward County address (driver’s license, Florida state ID, etc.).
• A photo ID and another form of identification which must include name and Broward County address. Accepted forms of ID include: personal check; current telephone, electric, or cable bill; mail with a current postmark (within 30 days) or voter registration card. (Post office box numbers are not accepted.)
Children five years of age or older may obtain their own library card only after one parent or guardian has obtained a card.
Persons sixteen years or older may obtain an adult library card with proper identification.
New cardholders may check out up to 2 items the first time they use their library card.

Replacing Your Library Card

If a library card is lost, please report it to the Library immediately. A library cardholder is responsible for all materials, fines, and fees charged against his or her library card until its loss is reported to the Library. If a library card is lost, the cardholder must pay a $3 replacement fee, and present current valid ID to get a new card.

Payment of Memberships, Fees, and Fines

Payment will be accepted in the form of cash or check. No credit cards, debit cards, etc. will be accepted.

The Library cannot accept any single currency bill of over $20.00 unless the change to be given is equal to or less than $20.00.

Patrons who owe more than $5.00 in fines are blocked. Blocked means the patron may not check out any materials or use a computer. If household fine total more than $20.00, the Library may block all immediate family members or persons living in the same residence until all fines or charges are satisfied.

If items are declared “lost” because they have not been returned and there has been no response to overdue notices, the replacement cost of the item will be charged to the patron.

If a patron pays the replacement cost of an item and then finds the item, they are entitled to keep the item. No refunds will be given.
