Library Card

In addition, full services are provided to all residents of the city of Durant, Iowa. To apply for a library card, you should stop in at one of our branches with a valid id and proof of current address. You may apply here to begin using your temporary card to access ebooks, eaudio, digital magazines, and comics, but you will still need to stop in with a valid id and proof of current address to pick up your physical card.
