Library Card Registration Info

Who can get a library card, and how.

How to get a library card

Who may get a card?
Cards are free to children and adults who live in our service area, which shares the boundaries of the Whitehall District Schools.  We have reciprocal agreements with Muskegon Area District Library and Hackley Public Library, and can issue card for residents of their service areas as well.

How to apply
Come into the library and bring a valid photo ID such as a driver's license, state ID card, Government-issued ID card including military ID, or a Passport. If your current address is not listed on your photo ID, you must also show proof of residency. This can be a utility bill (phone, electric, water), mail with a recent postmark, vehicle registration or proof of insurance, or a checkbook that has both your name and address. Children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian with photo ID.
Report any Lost or Stolen Cards to 231-894-9531.
Replacement cost for a lost card is $2.00  

Not from the White Lake area?
Patrons of other libraries within the Lakeland Library Cooperative can use their cards at the White Lake Community Library.

Those living outside the cooperative boundaries may purchase a non-resident card for $42 a year. This entitles you and your household to the use of all materials within our library, but does not include interlibrary loan services or access to our digital collections.  Summer Visitor cards are available for $14, and are valid for the months of June, July, August, and September.

Renewing your card
Library cards expire every three years.  To renew your card, simply verify your address and phone number with the library.  You will not be able to place a hold,  check out an item, or use our electronic resources until you renew your card.
