How to get a Library Card

Box numbers can not be accepted. We also need the name and phone number of a contact person not living with you where we can leave a message or contact you should you move.
All materials not reserved for library reference use only may be borrowed for two week periods. Items can be renewed up to three times unless another patron is waiting. Fuller Library does not charge an overdue or late fee but you are welcome to make a donation to the "conscience jar". All donations are used to purchase new materials for public use.
