Applying for a Library Card

 

We are happy that you have chosen to become a member of the Mineola Memorial Library by applying for a library card.  As we are a village library, our funding and management directly depends upon the Village of Mineola.  Therefore, membership in the library is extended only to residents or property owners of Mineola.  If you are a member of the Mineola School District you must also be a resident or property owner in Mineola to become a member.

ADULT CARDS:

Please fill out the top half of the application form and sign it.

  • Present the completed application to the Circulation Desk along with 1 proof of identity, and 1 proof of residency. These proofs can be satisfied by showing:

Proof of Identity (showing photo and name):

· A current NY driver’s license, temporary license, non-driver’s ID, learner’s permit

· Passport, work ID, school ID

Proof of Residency (showing your name and Mineola address):

· Current bank or credit card statements.

Property owners who are not residents may apply for a card upon presentation of a current tax bill or receipt.  Patron’s library record will note that he or she is a taxpayer.

All information provided must be current and indicate your name and the Mineola residential property address only. We regret that Post Office Boxes are not acceptable to establish residency.
