Who can get a library card, how to apply, and how to use your library card.

All residents of  Iowa are entitled to a Creston Public Library card.  When requesting a card, a person must fill out a registration form with the following information:  Full name, current address, and home phone number.  A new patron must show some form of identification with a current address.  This may be a driver's license, utility bill, etc. A parent or guardian must sign the registration card for a minor under age 18.  The library card must be shown when checking out items. There is a limit of 4 items the first time a patron checks out with a higher limit thereafter.   A replacement card is available for $1.00.  The standard borrowing period for books, magazines, and audiobooks is two weeks.  DVDs are checked out for two days.  Items not on hold may be renewed once.  Patrons are responsible for lost or damaged library materials and will be billed for full replacement cost of materials.
