How do I get a Library Card?
Generally two pieces of Identification are required for Pocatello residents:
1. A picture ID such as a driver’s license or state ID.
2. Proof of current Pocatello residency, such as a utility bill or cell phone bill that was mailed to your current Pocatello address, or a lease agreement with your Pocatello address listed. A driver's license alone will suffice if it has your current Pocatello address.
Cards are free to Pocatello residents and can be used immediately. Anyone 13 or older can get a card on their own by following the above requirements. Those under 13 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian present to sign for their card. New card applications will not be accepted the last 30 minutes of the day. First time card users have a limit of 3 books and all items must be returned before you can check out again.
Those who are not residents of Pocatello can get a Marshall Public Library card one of two ways:
1. Obtain a card from their home library (such as South Bannock or Portneuf Library in Chubbuck) and have an MPL barcode attached to the back. (Library must be participating in LiLI Express reciprocal borrowing agreement). This is a free service. See librarian for details.
2. If you prefer not to get a card from your home library, you can get a Marshall Library card by paying an annual $45 fee.
What if my card is lost or stolen?
If your library card is lost or stolen, contact the library immediately. You are responsible for all materials checked out on your library card, so treat it as you would a credit card. A replacement library card is $1.00.
