Q. How do I get a library card?


To apply for a free library card you must have valid identification showing proof of residency. Examples of acceptable proof are:

  • Valid California Driver's license, California identification card, or other Picture ID with current address (hand-written address on the back is not acceptable)

  • Current Vehicle Registration

  • Current Temporary Driver's License

  • Current rent receipt

  • Recent (60 days) utility bill

  • Current property tax bill

  • Current (60 days) imprinted statement, such as Mastercard or Visa

Note: A Post Office Box is not acceptable.Beginning June 10, 2009,  all California residents are eligible to apply for a free Thousand Oaks Library card upon proof of residence address.

Children under the age of 18 will need to have a parent present in order to get a library card.

If you lose your card, notify the library immediately.  A $2.00 replacement fee will be charged for lost library cards.

You may be asked at any time to present identification verifying the information on your library card. This will assist the staff in keeping your patron record current.
