how to get your JCLD library card
Next time you visit any of the JCLD library branches, bring a photo ID. If your ID does not reflect your current address, bring another form of address ID, such as a recent utility bill. If you prefer, click to download and complete the Library Card Application (pdf, 266kb) ahead of time.
You can also pick up an application at the JCLD Welcome Desk at the Grants Pass branch of Josephine Community Library or the Circulation desk at the rural branch libraries. The volunteer will enter or update your information in the computer, enter your selected password for your patron account, and issue your JCLD library card.
There are no limits on the number of books you can check out. However, music CDs and video cassettes are limited to five each, and DVDs are limited to three at a time. Books and music CDs are loaned for 21 days. DVDs and Library of Things are loaned for 10 days.
