How Do I Get a Library Card?

Visit any location of Livingston Parish Library to fill out a library card application.  You’ll need to show a current, valid ID with your name, photo, and Livingston Parish address, such as a Louisiana driver’s license.  If you don’t have a photo ID with your name and current address listed, one of the following identification types can be used.

  • – Checkbook with current mailing address
  • – Mail with date cancellation showing mailing address
  • – Receipt for payment of rent or utility charges within parish
  • – Lease agreement showing current address in parish

Citizens who reside outside of Livingston Parish but own property in the parish, a copy of the most recent tax bill along with a valid driver’s license must be presented.
