Who Can Get a Library Card?
Resident library cards are available to individuals who provide proof of a physical residence in Rapid City or Pennington County, unless you are served by libraries in
Hill City, Keystone, or Wall.
If you are 17 years old or younger, bring a parent or guardian over the age of 18 to have them sign up for you.
Persons who do not qualify for a resident library card may obtain a non-resident card for the following fees: $90.00 per card per year or $7.50 per card per month.
How Do I Apply?
Bring a photo ID and proof that you own or lease property in Rapid City or Pennington County, or that you receive mail, at no cost, at a local agency that assists individuals who are homeless or living in transitional housing.
Post office boxes, personal mailbox services and commercial mail service addresses may be used as mailing addresses but do not constitute verification of a physical residence.
Can't come to the library due to COVID-19?
If you're unable to come in to the library due to COVID-19, you may also register online for a temporary account. Temporary accounts are good for 3 months and limited to 2 checkouts and online services. Bring a photo ID and proof that you own or lease property in Rapid City or Pennington County in order to receive full services.
