Any child or adult who resides, owns property or attends school in Cheyenne County is eligible for a subsidized library card. Local organizations may apply for a library card too. To receive a card, fill out a Borrower Registration form at the library. All you need is an ID and proof of your current address. A parent or legal guardian’s signature is required before a library card will be issued to a borrower under the age of 18. There is $5 charge to replace a lost card.
Checking out materials:
Checking out is fast and easy with a valid library card. A maximum of 20 items may be borrowed at a time. The limitations are as follows:
Audio Books: 10
All items check out for two weeks, except Movies, which circulate for one week. Patrons may renew/extend the checkout time of an item once unless the item has been reserved for another patron.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL):
If there is a specific item you want that the Sidney Public Library does not have, it may be possible to borrow it through an Interlibrary Loan (ILL). The fee per item is $3.00 to cover the cost of postage/shipping.
