To get a library card at Carthage Public Library, bring a document (ID, bill, etc.) with your name and current address to the front desk. There is no charge for patrons who live within the city limits of Carthage. Patrons who live outside the city limits must pay a yearly non-resident fee of $20 dollars. This non-resident fee covers all members of a household living at a particular address for the span of one year. We also issue internet-only cards for computer users (no charge to sign up or proof of address needed), and temporary cards for visitors (with deposit).
We've got lots of DVDs for all ages - from Cars and Mater's Tall Tales to Sherlock and Justified! More added all the time; come check them out! DVDs are located upstairs near the reference area and check out for one week with no renewals.
We've rearranged and redone our music CD collection and we've added a ton of newer artists and old classics, with more to come! Music CDs are located upstairs near the reference area and check out for two weeks, just like a book.
