How do I get a library card?

If you live or own property in the city of David City, please bring proof of your address and personal identification to the Library and we will register you for a card. If you live out of town, and do not own property within the city limits, the cost of a library card is $20 for an individual or $30 for a family, along with your personal identification. It is that easy! You will then have access to all of the library services and programs available.
