Lending Policy

Lending Policy

Purpose

A public library collects and makes available materials for a community. This policy establishes lending periods and limits in order to maximize access for all patrons. Responsibility for all borrowed items as well as the use of the Internet rests with the library card holder and/or the parent or guardian.

1. Obtaining a Library Card

  • Meridian Library District residents may obtain a free library card by providing photo ID and proof of address. Limited use library cards may be issued to minors until a guardian can sign for a full access card.
  • Those who live within the boundaries of the Boise, Eagle, Garden City, or Ada Community libraries may obtain their library cards at the Meridian Library.
  • Nonresidents may obtain a library card for $50.00 a year. Nonresidents, 55 and older, may obtain a library card for $25.00 a year.
  • Lost or stolen cards need to be reported to the library immediately. The Library may charge a $2 replacement fee for excessive losses.
