Library Use (General Access and How to Get a Library Card)
Library Use Policy:
The library will serve all residents of Clark County. Service will not be denied or abridged because of religious, racial, social, economic, or political status; or because of mental, emotional, or physical condition; age; or sexual orientation.
The use of the library may be denied for due cause. Such cause may be failure to return library materials or to pay penalties, destruction of library property, disturbance of other patrons, failure to abide by library policies or any other illegal, disruptive, or objectionable conduct on library premises.
Access to the holdings of the Clark County Library will not be restricted for anyone using the materials in-house. Those wishing to borrow items from the library’s circulating collection or use the Inter-library Loan Service, must have a valid library card.
Issuance of Library Cards Those wishing to acquire a library card must submit an application for and provide any and all documentation needed to comply with this policy. The validity of the information on a library account must be re-established on an annual basis to maintain borrowing privileges. Library Cards may be issued to persons ages 5 and up. Applicants, including minors, must be present at time of application. The first library card issued will be at no cost, but subsequent replacement cards will have a replacement fee of $2.00 each.
