Library Cards

The library offers free membership to Falmouth residents, Falmouth educators, Town of Falmouth employees, and Falmouth business owners.   Non-resident cards are available for a $35 annual fee. Please apply in person and bring a driver’s license (or other photo ID) with your current address information.  In the event of a recent move, a photo ID along with a current utility bill to the correct address may be used.  Anyone under 18 years of age needs to have a parent or legal guardian’s signature.

It is important that you bring your card with you every time you wish to check out library materials.  You are responsible for all items checked out on your account including all charges for overdue fines and damage to or loss of library items.    Lost library cards may be replaced for $2.

Important Note to All Card Holders

The Falmouth Memorial Library protects the privacy of ALL its patrons, regardless of age or relationship to other library patrons.  This means the appropriate library card number must be presented in order to check out or to pick up items on hold.  We HIGHLY recommend that parents keep a copy of their children’s library cards (or card numbers) with their own personal card.  Without the card number, we cannot reveal any information about the account to you, regardless of the age of the child.  Be certain to provide your card or card number to any individual picking up items on your behalf, regardless of their relationship to you or the Library.
