Library Cards
Any teen living in Ouachita Parish can receive a library card. With their very own library card, teens can check out books, CDs, and magazines. You can even check out manga, graphic novels, and comic books. Teens ages 17 and older can also check out DVDs and art prints. Teens can also access any of our online resources for free with a library card.

Parents or guardians will need to fill out an application for the teens under the age of 17. The parent will need to show proof of identification (like a driver's license) and proof of address (like a delivered piece of mail). Parents are financially responsible for the teen's library card, should any fines accumulate. Teens ages 17 and older are financially responsible for their own cards.
