Getting a library card...

The Nevada Library District is fixed by the boundaries of the City of Nevada. The Library is financed by a real estate tax that is levied on property within the city limits.

City Residents

Stop by the library to fill out a library card application. Residents who rent or own property within the city limits of Nevada are eligible for a free library card.

Bring a valid photo ID and proof of current address.

Accepted documents for proof of address if issued within the last 30 days.

  • postmarked mail

  • a utility bill (paper or e-bill)

  • a lease agreement with address, landlord & tenant's signature

  • a medical document with the applicant's name

  • a pay stub

  • a grade card or school correspondence for students ages 16-18

Your library card gives you access to Nevada Public Library's physical collection (books, DVDs, etc.), a digital collection of eBooks and downloadable audiobooks, online resources, and public computers.

You must present your own library card to check out items and to use the library's computers.

Library cards are valid for one year.
