Applying for a Full Service Library Card

Library cards are free to residents of Texas. An application must be filled out in person along with at least one of the following:

  • Texas Residents need a valid government issued ID or Driver’s License
  • Non-Texas Residents need a government-issued photo ID and a utility bill or lease agreement with current address

Juvenile Library Cards

A Parent/Legal Guardian who wishes to sign their children up for a library card must fill out the application form on behalf of the child. A Parent/Legal Guardian will have two options: 

Option 1: A parent/Legal Guardian may apply for a Juvenile Library card on behalf of a juvenile 17 years of age or under. This card can be used to borrow materials, use library computers and access our databases. The ability to access databases and e-books may vary depending on your county of residence. Juvenile library cards cannot be used to check out circulating hotspots.

Option 2: A Parent/Legal Guardian may choose to sign the child up for a restricted card, which requires the Parent/Legal Guardian to be physically present when materials are checked out and only items with a juvenile call number can be checked out on the card. Restricted juvenile library cards cannot be used to check out circulating hotspots. 

By signing the application form, the Parent/Legal Guardian assumes responsibility for the child’s selection of materials and use of electronic resources, as well as any fines and fees.

Non-Resident Cards

Non-Resident cards are available for a $30 annual fee. This card allows you to check out 5 items at a time and provides access to library computers.

Patron Privacy

In accordance with state law, the library cannot give out patron information.

Managing Your Account.

After you sign up for a library card, there are many tools to manage your account online; go to the Victoria Public Library Catalog page and login with your library card number and PIN
