Library Card
Printable library card application

A library card application for a resident under the age of 18 must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. A driver license with the current address of the parent or responsible adult must be presented. Parents of children under the age of 18 must sign the application regarding permission for access to unfiltered Internet.

Residents of St. Clair Shores are also eligible to borrow materials from any other library within the Suburban Library Cooperative.  A list of these libraries may be obtained at the circulation desk or on the Suburban Library Cooperative's web page.

Residents or taxpayers in other areas of the Suburban Library Cooperative are permitted to borrow materials from the St. Clair Shores Library.

The St. Clair Shores Public Library is also a participant in the Mi Library Card program, a statewide borrowing program.

Non-residents may purchase a borrower's card for $200.00 per year.

Library cards are not transferable and may not be used by anyone else.

Each borrower is financially responsible for loss or damage to any materials checked out on his/her card. Parents and guardians are responsible for all materials checked out on their children's cards.

Lost or stolen library cards should be reported immediately. Until notification is given, you are responsible for all materials checked out and any charges incurred.

A fee of $2.00 will be charged for the replacement of a lost or stolen card.  Once a card has been replaced by another, it will not be reinstated.

Borrowed materials must be returned within the proper loan period. Fines will be assessed for materials returned after the loan period. A list of loan periods and daily fines can be found here.

Books may be renewed one time only, provided there are no reserves on the material. New fiction and new non-fiction are excluded.

Borrowing privileges may be suspended or revoked for violation of library guidelines and policies.
