Do I have to be a resident to get a library card?
No! But non-residents do have to pay a fee of $12.50 for a six-month library card or $25 for one-year library card.
How do I get a library card?
A library card is easy to obtain. Simply show the librarian your driver’s license or a utility bill that reflects your status as a resident of the Town of Franconia. Non-residents must present a driver’s license or passport. Children under 16 years of age will be issued a library card after a parent or guardian signs a registration card accepting responsibility. For more information, please refer to Rules & Policies.
What in the world would we do without our libraries?
It was good to walk into a library again; it smelled like home.
I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.
Jorge Luis Borges
The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man
