How to Get a Library Card for Your Child

The Pollard Library does not have an age requirement for library cards.  Here is how to get your child a library card:

  1. Only parents or legal guardians may obtain library cards for children.
  2. The parent/guardian must come to the library and bring identification with the parent’s/guardian’s name and current Lowell address.
  3. The child does not have to be present.
  4. First-time library cards are free.  Replacement library cards cost $1.
