Who Can Get a Card?
Adult Residents of South Thomaston and surrounding towns may sign up for library privileges by completing an application at the library. They can then request an optional wallet card with their personal bar code number. This number is only needed if the patron intends to use the downloadable audio books program from their personal computer.
Temporary residents may also apply for a card, but will be restricted in the number of items to be checked out.
How long is the loan period?
Books, movies and cassette/CD audio books are checked out for 2 weeks at a time. The loan period may be renewed twice, if no one else is waiting for the item.
Can Children get their own cards?
Children who are at least 6 years old, and have not reached age 18, whose parents are permanent residents of South Thomaston, may sign up for an individual card with the parent's permission. At that time, the parent will also be required to sign whether or not the child is authorized to access the Internet on Library computers without the parent being present.
Children whose parents are not permanent residents of the town (summer vacationers, other surrounding towns, etc) will be allowed to check out materials only on the parent's card.
