  1. Documents with their printed address such as a utility bill or a driver’s license is acceptable.
  2. When a patron lives outside the county, but works in the county, the patron can obtain a library card, when they show proof that they work or own their own business here.

  4. If the patron resides in Nogales, Sonora they must also pay $25.00; this is considered a donation.
  5. Library cards expire annually on the day issued; the clerk will automatically renew cards if there are no changes in patron’s information or make changes as advised by patron. Renewal also applies to non-residents who have made a donation to have a card.
  6. To replace a lost card, a $3.00 fee is charged.
