Applying for a Library Card

Applying for a Library Card is simple and takes only minutes!

Any person residing, owning property, or employed in Shasta County is eligible for a Shasta Public Libraries card and, therefore, may borrow materials free of charge from the Redding, Anderson, and Burney Libraries. The privilege of obtaining a Library card will also be extended to individuals residing in any City and/or County of the State of California.

1. Fill out the online application

Go to our Online Application.
This application asks for:

  • Legal name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • E-mail (optional)

2. Then come in and see a library staff member

(If under 17 you must appear with your parent or legal guardian.)

You will need:

  • Photo Identification - this includes a Driver's License, Identification Card, Passport, Military ID, etc.
  • Proof of current permanent address - this includes official mail or a current bill with applicant's name and address, a check imprinted with name and address, a lease or mortgage agreement, a tax payment receipt, bank statement, etc.

3. Sign Card

By signing the library card, you agree to follow the rules and regulations of the library. Library cards may be used at the Redding, Anderson and Burney Libraries as well as for our online resources and books.

One application is needed for each person applying for a card. Each person applying must be present to receive the card. When signing up a child for a library card, the legal parent or guardian and the child must be present. The parent or guardian assumes responsibility for material borrowed by the child.
