How do I get a library card?

To get a Harlem Public Library card, you must come in to the library with a current photo ID; be at least 16 years of age; and be in good standing at the Blaine County Library & Havre-Hill County Library.  

Getting a library card is free!  When you bring your ID, library staff will enter your information into the system, and mail you your library card.  The first time you use your card, you may check out one item.  When that is returned on time and in good condition, you may have regular privileges.

Preschool children may check out materials under their parent’s/legal guardian’s card. Students under the age of 16 may apply for a card with a parent/legal guardian present who has a current photo identification card, working phone number and mailing address.

How much does it cost to copy, print, or fax?

Black & white copies and prints are $.20 per page.  Colored copies are $1.00 per page.  Faxing (sending and receiving) is $1.00 per page.

How can I check out a hotspot or other electronic device?

To check out an electronic device, a patron must be 18+ years old, and an established user in good standing.  New card holders must have an established borrowing record for at least 30 days before checkouts will be allowed.  There is also a policy and agreement that needs to be read and signed at the front desk.  Click here to view the policy and the agreement.

Do you have the book "_______"?

If there is a book you'd like to borrow, but we don't have it, we can Interlibrary Loan the item from another library.  We ask that you leave a $3.00 deposit when Interlibrary Loaning items, then you can have that back when the item is returned on time and in good condition.  You can check our catalog here
