To obtain a library card, you can start by filling out the online form. Additionally, you will have to visit one of the Jackson District Library branches and present one piece of photo identification showing your name and current address. If you are under 18, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian possessing a valid Jackson District Library card or photo ID.
Your first library card is free for all Jackson County residents and $75.00 for non-residents. There is a $1.00 charge to replace a lost or stolen card.
The annual fee for a non-resident to maintain a Jackson District Library card is $75.00. A single piece of photo identification showing your current name and address is required.
A pin number is a 4 digit number that you select at the time of obtaining a library card. If you do not remember your PIN number your friendly librarian can look it up for you.
Report the card lost immediately. You are responsible for any materials checked out on your card until you have reported it lost or stolen.
A Jackson District Library card is required to check out materials from the Jackson District Library or the Jackson College Atkinson Learning Resources Center (LRC) or to use any Jackson District Library public computer. It is also required to use the online databases on this website from outside the library.
