Get a Card
Library cards are available free of charge to Massachusetts residents as well as non-residents owning property in Truro. There is a $5.00 annual fee for cards issued to non-residents. Photo identification and proof of address must be provided when applying for a card. The Truro Library is a member of the local CLAMS (Cape Libraries Automated Materials Sharing) network. Library cards issued by members are honored by all member libraries.
Children may obtain a library card at the age of 5 or upon entering kindergarten. A parent or guardian must accompany children applying for cards.
Borrowers are responsible for all items borrowed on their card, including fines charged for overdue materials and replacement costs for lost or damaged items
Reference materials and current issues of periodicals are non-circulating. All other test materials including books, audio recordings and back issues of periodicals may be borrowed for a two-week period. This material may be renewed twice. Video material in both VHS and DVD formats may be borrowed for a calendar week. Materials may be returned to any CLAMS member library.
