DAVIS COUNTY LIBRARIES - The Davis County Library will be attending PTC on Monday only! To help you register for a library card for yourself and anyone for whom you are the parent/legal guardian.

Library policy requires two separate forms of identification:
1. A photo identification, such as a driver’s license, state issued or military identification card, warehouse membership card, etc.
2. Proof of Davis County residency. Proof of residency may include checkbook, current utility bills, letters which have been delivered within the past sixty (60) days through the US Postal Service, or property tax notices.

If both forms are not available, you may be required to present needed documentation at your preferred branch prior to your card(s) being activated.

We look forward to connecting you with all the library has to offer!
