Welcome to Haywood County Public Library: Using the Library

LIBRARY CARDS

Fill out a library card application at any branch or online (if online, please allow 24-48 hours for processing). Bring photo identification (driver’s license, military id, passport) and proof of local mailing address (utility bill, rental agreement, piece of mail) to receive a card. Children under the age of 18 require an adult parent/guardian signature on the application. 

RENEWING ITEMS

All materials may be renewed once by phone, in person, or online, unless the item is reserved for another person. Avoid overdue fines by renewing materials before they are due. Provide your email address at any library Circulation Desk to receive courtesy notices before materials are due.
