Adults Ages 18+
Library cards may be obtained by any resident or business of Pickens County. Adults ages 18+ may bring in their government-issued photo ID with their correct local mailing address to apply for a card. If the address shown on the ID is not correct, proof of local address is required.
Parents and legal guardians may obtain library cards for their minor children. Proof of identification for the adult is required. Adults’ cards must be in good standing in order to obtain a youth card. Parents/guardians are responsible for materials checkout to youth cards.
Residents within our reciprocity area (Greenville, Anderson, and Oconee Counties) may obtain a free card provided they are in good standing with their county library system. Reciprocal borrowing cards do not permit access to the library’s downloadable collections. If reciprocal borrowers wish to obtain this access, they may pay the yearly out-of-county fee.
Residents outside of our reciprocal borrowing area may purchase a library card for $25 per year.
If you had a Pickens County Library Card in the past, or have lost your card, please do not fill out a new online application. Simply bring your current photo ID into any branch to purchase a replacement card. Replacement library cards are $2.00.
Library card applications may be submitted online. To complete the application process and obtain your card, please bring your photo ID to any location.
The Pickens County Library System will offer residents of any contiguous county borrowing privileges for all circulation materials at all its service points provided that residents of Pickens County are afforded the same borrowing privileges in all that county’s public library service points.
