Your Library Card
Who can get a library card, how to apply, and how to use your library card.
OPEN BORROWING PRIVILEGES:
The Library maintains collections of materials for children, young adults, and adults. Anyone, regardless of age, may select from any part of the Library collection. To serve varied interests and points of view, we select materials from a broad range of political, economic, religious, artistic, and philosophic viewpoints. The Library makes no attempt to assume the rightful role of parenting in monitoring, controlling, or curtailing, the reading of children. The Lowden Public Library has a strong commitment to policy of open access by which all materails are available to Library users regardless of age. Because we live in a democratic society which values freedom of thought and work, it is essential that the Public Library respect each person's right to information and confidentiality, no matter what age. It must be the responsibility of those parents who wish to do so to monitor their own children's use of Library materials.
BECOMING A BORROWER:
If you are a resident of Lowden or the surrounding rural Cedar County, or a valid card from another Iowa Library you may become a registered borrowerr. Registration is for 3 years or until you become an inactive user.
All materials check out with 2 week loan period. Materials can be renewed in person, by phone, e-mail or Catalog(with user name and password).
