Library Card

Individuals of all ages may apply for a library card with proper identification and proof of residence. Parental signature is required for children under the age of 14 yrs. Patrons must be present to be issued a library card.

  • Proper identification sources include the following:
    Photo ID (valid Driver’s License or Non-Driver ID, Military ID, School ID,
    or Passport). *If photo ID does not provide verification of current local residency, supporting documentation verifying residency within the City of Bettendorf is required.
  • Supplementary forms of identification may include, but are not limited to: mail received at the patron’s residence; automobile registration; rental lease/agreement; utility bills for place of residence, etc.

* Individuals who are unable to provide proof of residence at the time of their initial visit may be eligible for a New Borrower card, providing limited access to the library collection until proof of residence is confirmed.

Statement of Responsibility

By applying for a Blakesburg Public Library Card, the user agrees to obey the policies, rules and regulations of the library and understands that library staff may only share account information with the person whose name is listed on the account.

I confirm that the above information is correct and I will promptly notify the library if my address or contact information changes.


If you prefer, stop in at the library to obtain a library card that can be used to check out materials in the library collection, or to download free e-books, e-audiobooks, magazines and limited streaming video. Your library card is your passport to the world!
