Fargo or Moorhead residents that have a library card from the Fargo Public Library or Lake Agassiz Regional Library (LARL) may get a West Fargo Public Library card for free by presenting a library card from their home library, photo ID and proof of current address.
All other non-residents must pay an annual fee of $5.00 to obtain a library card.
Card Expiration and Replacement
Library cards expire every 2 years and may be renewed over the phone or in person at the library.
Replacements for lost cards may be purchased for $1.00. Damaged cards may be replaced at no charge.
Children and Teens
The West Fargo Public Library supports literacy at all ages by inviting children and teens to obtain their own library cards. An application for a child under 14 must be signed by a parent or legal guardian who assumes full responsibility for any materials used by the child. The parent must provide identification and proof of current address.
My First Library Card Program
A library card opens a world of opportunity for children while giving them ownership of their library experience. Having their own card makes visiting the library and picking out books tons of fun too! To obtain a My First Library Card, visit the service desk at the library to fill out an application for your youngster. Be sure to choose the My First Library Card design option when you fill out your application form. At this time, a My First Library Card cannot be applied for online.
