Applying For a Library Card
Any resident of Deptford Township is eligible for a Deptford Free Public Library card. In order to register, the patron must supply one form of photo ID and one proof of address. A valid New Jersey Driver’s License will satisfy both of these requirements. In addition to identification, the library will require the contact information of a friend, neighbor, or relative who does not share your current address or phone number to serve as an emergency contact.
Juveniles under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who must provide the above identification and a parental signature, taking responsibility for the juvenile’s card.
Library cards must be renewed every two years for the library to maintain accurate records.
Library Card Replacement Fee
There is a $3.00 fee for the replacement of a lost, stolen or damaged library card.
In order to check out library materials, a patron must present a valid library card at the circulation desk. In the absence of a library card, a valid photo ID and proof of address may be used instead.
