How to get a card:
City of Rupert residents will need to bring in proof of address and photo identification. There will be no additional charge for city residents because your library is supported through your property taxes. Rural residents will need to bring in photo identification and there will be a fee assessed of $45.00 +tax, per year, per household. Six-month cards may also be purchased for $22.50 +tax or a three-month card for $11.25 +tax. Children under the age of 18 may purchase a Child Card for $2 +tax, but are limited to 2 books out at a time and no movies or games.
Individuals not residing inside city limits also have the option to purchase a Digital-Only card. This card gives access to all of our digital content, such as OverDrive, RBdigital, Universal Class, and other online services. It may not be used to check out any physical items from the library. Digital-Only cards can be purchased for $10.00 +tax, per year, per individual.
Computers and wireless internet access are available to all patrons for no charge. Guests who do not have a library card may also access the internet.
