Library Cards

Concordia Parish Library cards are available to patrons by submitting an application in person at any branch location. There is no charge for the first library card for Concordia Parish residents or those who work in Concordia Parish. Replacement cards are $3.00.

Patrons residing in Tensas and Catahoula Parishes may also apply for Concordia Parish Library cards without charge. Patrons from any other Louisiana parish and out-of-state patrons must pay a non-resident fee of $15.00 annually for Concordia Parish Library card privileges.

In order to apply for a library card, you must provide the following:

  • Current picture ID or driver’s license
  • Current proof of residence, such as a voter registration card, bank statement, utility bill, or telephone bill

Patrons under age 17 must have a parent’s or guardian’s signature in order to borrow materials from Concordia Parish Library. The parent or guardian assumes financial responsibility for all overdue fines and replacement charges per our circulation policy.

In addition to being able to check out books and audiovisual materials from any branch locations, your Concordia Parish Library card is also your access key to many online resources including OverDrive (eBooks and audiobooks), Zinio (digital magazines), Freegal (free MP3 downloads) and the Louisiana Library Connection state databases.
