Getting a card for your child

  • A child is defined as any one under 18 years of age.
  • If you wish to obtain a card for your children they do not need their own identification; you may use your ID to get them cards. (Two forms of ID required, one with your current address.) You must sign the registration card for them.
  • Children over 12 years of age who have their own forms of required identification may get a library card themselves. You do not need to sign the registration card .
  • Children under 7 years of age must not be left unattended at any time, including when participating in programs.
  • If you wish for your children to avoid specific titles, library collections or topics, you must arrange that with your children. Library staff can assist in making recommendations or finding requested items but will not censor.
  • Children may borrow any DVDs designated as Juvenile or Young Adult. Children with a regular youth card require a parent’s permission in person to access other videos. MyCard holders are not permitted to borrow other videos. You accept responsibility for selection of videos. Please familiarize yourself with our video policy before granting permission.
  • Minors 8 and up will be granted access to first floor computers. For more information on children’s internet usage, please review our internet policy

My Card

We are excited to announce the Troy Public Library MyCard. Our new youth card improves access to library materials for children who live in the city of Troy.

The MyCard is for kids and teens ages 5-17 who live in the city of Troy. With a MyCard, kids can take up to 3 items out at once. They will be able to borrow books, audiobooks, and music CDs without any late fines. Only charges for lost or damaged items will apply.

The MyCard is only valid at Troy Public Library locations. If a child already has a card in our system they may keep it or replace it with our new MyCard.

Be sure to check our website or our Facebook page for details and updates.
