How to Get a Library Card


Val Verde County residents, 18 years of age or older, must show a valid Texas Driver's License, a Texas ID, Military ID from Laughlin Air Force Base, or a utility bill (light, water, gas) or rent receipt showing a Val Verde County address (physical and/or PO Box) along with a photo ID to receive a Resident VVCL card. A first time applicant is able to receive their card for free; a replacement is $1.00.

Children of Val Verde County residents, 3 years of age or older, must have a parent or guardian apply and sign for a Resident Child VVCL card; a parent or guardian must apply and sign for the card and assume responsibility for all library materials borrowed by the child.

Non-resident applicants are able to receive a library card at a $5.00 charge to help ensure proper library usage. Any non-resident applicant must provide a current driver's license, or a state ID. If a non-resident applicant is staying in Val Verde County for a short period of time (Winter Texan, etc.), the applicant must also provide the address they are currently staying at, and also their out of county address.
