Library cards are available at no charge to the following:

  • Residents of Union County

  • Property or business owners in Union County

  • Employees of schools in Union County

  • Employees of Union County government or city government agencies in Union County

  • Students, faculty, and staff of USC Union

Non-Resident library card

Anyone who does not meet one of the criteria listed above may obtain a card for an annual fee based on the amount a Union County resident contributes towards public library service, currently $10.


Parent/guardian is responsible for registering any minors (under 18) for a library card

You can sign up for a library card using this link but you will need to come into the library, with your ID, to pick up your card.
