How do I provide identification and proof of address?


ID and proof of address for your library account (or for the parent, or legal guardian of a minor under age 13) is as follows:

  • Current California Driver's License or California ID card (Temporary driver's license is not acceptable)

OR, any combination of two from this list, including the following:

  • Any government issued picture ID (military ID, green card, etc.)
  • Student ID card
  • Recent student report card
  • A credible ID issued by a reputable business or organization
  • Imprinted bank check (personal check or payroll check made payable to customer)
  • A piece of first class mail postmarked within the past 30 days
  • Voter registration card
  • Utility bill (print or digital)
  • Automobile registration
  • A letter from a Social Service Provider stating that the individual receives mail at the provider's address

If no verification for a permanent address can be shown, an Address Verification Postcard can be sent to your residence.
