How do I get a library card?
Go to the Library with photo identification that shows your name and Tyngsborough address, and has your signature. The easiest form of ID is a Massachusetts Driver’s License or State ID card showing your current address. Another alternative is to bring a letter that came to you in the mail, in conjunction with a form of photo ID that bears your signature such as a health card, student ID, or credit card.
Borrowing privileges at the Tyngsborough Public Library are extended to:
1. Individuals who are residents of any Massachusetts community that is certified in the State Aid to Libraries Program.
2. Residents of other states who have been granted a local-use-only card.
Individual Borrower Card
A borrower card will be issued to any Tyngsborough resident or any Massachusetts resident outside the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC) who has completed kindergarten, or is over 6 years of age.
Residents of MVLC communities must use their hometown MVLC cards without obtaining a Tyngsborough card. Residents of Massachusetts residing in towns outside of MVLC must have a card from their hometown library, which must be entered into the MVLC system for the resident to receive full borrowing privileges.
There is no charge for the first card. Replacement cost for plastic library cards will be $1.00. New barcodes will be issued with each new card.
Cards or suitable identification must be presented to borrow materials.
Parents are responsible for items borrowed by children under 18 years of age.
Patrons are responsible for all items borrowed using their cards. The library should be notified immediately if a card is lost or stolen.
The Library reserves the right to issue local-use-only cards at the discretion of the Library staff.
