LINDEN — Linden Library cards expire every two years, allowing the library to verify that the card-holder still lives in Linden. This June, the new library building will have been open two years, and many residents got a new card at that time.
Renewals are especially important for school children as they need their library cards to check out books for their summer reading projects from school. During the past two years, the rules for teen library cards have changed.
To renew a card, or to get a new card, any child through 17 years of age and able to print his or her name needs to bring a parent or legal guardian to sign for the card. The parent/guardian must show proof of residency, and a legal guardian must also bring documentation stating guardianship. This may be a current New Jersey driver’s license with a Linden address. If the parent/guardian does not possess a current license, he or she must present two of the following forms of identification: a) a utility bill (phone, gas, electric), a payroll stub, a bank account statement, a property tax bill, or a rental lease that shows his or her name and a Linden address, and b) a Social Security card, a voter registration card, a senior I.D., or a current driver’s license with an out-of-town address.
Library card renewals are done at the main circulation desk in the lobby. For more information, call 1-908-298-3830.
