All Ascension Parish residents are eligible for a free library card. See the FAQs below for additional information.
If you live, work, or attend school in Ascension Parish, simply bring in a current picture ID (driver’s license, school ID, military ID, or passport) and proof of address (driver’s license, school ID, a piece of mail, or voter registration). Children from birth to the age of 13 may apply for a juvenile library card. Minors under the age of 18 who don’t have picture IDs may apply for a library card with a parent or guardian. Library cards are issued at no charge for a 5-year period. You can use this library card to check out library materials from our print and digital library, explore a local museum and more with our Library of Things collection, use our research databases and online learning websites, visit our Tech Rooms for computer and internet access, and reserve meeting and study rooms at all of our locations.
To get an eCard, simply fill out this Online Borrower Registration form. Your eCard will give you immediate access to limited resources in our digital library, such as OverDrive (Libby), cloudLibrary, and Kanopy. When you visit one of our locations, you can convert your eCard to a full-access library card, which will allow you to check out books and other library materials at any Ascension Parish Library location.
