Our library card policy:

The library will serve all permanent, part-time, and temporary residents of Tamworth. Residents of adjacent towns may use the library and there will be no fee for patron registration. Cardholders of other Northern New Hampshire Library Cooperative libraries (Conway, Jackson, Madison) may use their home library cards at Cook Memorial Library. Duplicate cards will not be issued. Borrowing privileges are extended to anyone over seven years of age. All such patrons shall complete a registration card. The Library Director has the authority to make exceptions to the above policies.

To sign up for a library card, stop in the library and ask to fill out an application. Adults will be asked to provide proof of address (i.e., driver’s license, lease or tax bill, utility bill showing mailing address). Applicants without a permanent address are invited to discuss options with the Library Director.

You may also request a library card by emailing cooklib@tamworthlibrary.org to ask to apply online.

Resident and part-time resident cards have a three-year renewal cycle; nonresident cards need to renewed annually. Nonresident cards are issued for the purpose of checking physical items out of the library only. Online library collections (ebooks, digital audiobooks, Ancestry, etc.) that require library cards are for resident and part-time resident cards only.
