WHO CAN GET A CARD?
The library is tax-supported by the residents who live in the library district. Check your St. Clair County Real Estate Tax bill. If Smithton Public Library District is listed as a ‘Taxing Body’ under ‘Distribution’, then you are eligible for a library card.
If you do not live in the library district, but own property in the district (personal or for a business), please call the library to inquire about obtaining a library card. As always, if you are unsure about if you can get a library card, please call the library and ask. We’re more than happy to help! Our phone number is 618-233-8057.
Present proof of identity, residency, and/or ownership by:
1. Presenting a photo ID
2. Real estate tax bill, lease agreement, or utility bill showing a legal residency within the Library District.
Minors age 5-15 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to obtain a borrower’s card.
Non-Residents Non-residents of SPLD, who are not resident of any other Library taxing district or body, may obtain a card, valid for one year, by paying the non-resident card fee and presenting photo identification. (Non-resident fee is currently $132, effective July 1, 2021.) Effective July 1, 2022, the non-resident fee will be $124.
A $2 fee will be charged to replace a lost card.
