~ HOW TO REGISTER FOR A LIBRARY CARD ~
Welcome to Windsor Locks Public Library, your hometown source for information, Internet access, books, movies, music,
educational and entertaining programs, and more, all for free!
Any resident of Windsor Locks may apply for a library card at any age by filling out a registration card (available at the Circulation desk).
We also offer online registration. The person in whose name the card is issued must visit the library
in order to obtain or activate their library card, even if they cannot yet sign their name (i.e. minor children must accompany their parent
or guardian to the library in order for a card to be issued in their name) .
Residents ages 16 and over and parents/guardians of minors must provide a picture I.D. (driver's license, state ID, or school ID)
and proof of residency (a postmarked piece of mail, check stub, lease, etc. if address on license is not local). For residents under the age
of 16, the signature of a parent or guardian is required along with proof of residency for that person. Please note that
parents or guardians whose cards are blocked due to fines or lost items may not sign for a pre-school child's card or use their
child's card until their own record has been cleared. A child may continue to use his/her own card to check out materials for
themselves even if their parent's card is blocked).
All fines and obligations related to any library card previously issued in Connecticut must be settled before a Windsor Locks card
may be issued or renewed. We will be happy to help you investigate or settle any outstanding charges.
Library cards are valid for a period of three (3) years. If the card is lost prior to the renewal date, a fee of $1 will be charged for a
replacement card. There is no charge for initial registration or regular renewals of your Windsor Locks library card.
Under the Connecticut State Library's "CONNECTICARD" plan, your library card must be issued in your town of residence and
any valid public library card may be used in ALL public libraries in the state of Connecticut. Get your library card today!
