Library Card Registration
Resident Status (LR)
Any new applicant who resides in District limits of the Mississippi Valley Library District wanting to apply for a library card must produce 2 forms of identification - one picture id and another and both forms must have the same Collinsville residence. If the picture id does not agree with the current residence, the person is responsible to produce 2 forms without the picture which do agree (the picture id identifies the person, the others identify the residence).
Patrons renewing their cards must produce one form of identification that shows current District residency.
Three year expiration date given.
