Ask a Librarian
Yes, a local college student may get a free library card if you live in Richland County while attending school. To register for a card, stop by any Richland Library to fill out a registration. If you are able to provide a photo ID and proof of residency (such as a lease, campus housing letter, or major utility bill) then you may check out items the day that you register. If you do not have proof of residency then you may still register for a card and it will be mailed to your Richland County address. When you receive the card in the mail you may begin checking out materials.
If your card will be mailed, ask for your library card numbers and PIN if you need immediate access to our online resources and downloadable materials.
