    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.
