It’s easy to get your Smart Card. You can apply online here, and pick your card up at the library location you choose, or if you are a Catawba County resident, we’ll mail it to you. You can also go to any library branch and get your card the same day.
All you will need is proof of identification and NC residency (a valid North Carolina driver’s license or state ID is preferred). Parents can get their own card and one for their children. Of course, we know that you understand you are responsible for the materials that both you and your children check-out.
All items are free to borrow, and do have due dates–with fees for extended borrowing beyond the date for most materials.
Your card also gives you a wealth of access to powerful online resources-available from here, home or anywhere — eBooks and other eResources, language learning tools, magazine and news resources, movies, music, legal forms, career resources, and more.
