Who can get a library card?
Anyone can acquire a library card. If you pay property taxes to the City of Red Oak, or are a Red Oak city employee or a Red Oak school teacher your card is free of charge. For all other interested patrons a yearly membership fee of $20 is required. Children may be added under a registered adult for $5 each.

Only a legal parent or guardian may get a card for a child, and may be asked to show legal proof of guardianship. All fees accumulated on the child’s card are the financial responsibility of the parent or guardian. Children must be old enough to sign their own name, or of an age where they would normally be able to do so.
