Get a Library Card


20150616_172110The West Branch Public Library offers library cards to all residents of West Branch, Cedar County, and the state of Iowa.  All these card holders may borrow all physical items in the library including books for all ages, DVDs, music and audiobook CDs, Cricut cartridges, and cake pans.

Residents of West Branch and rural Cedar County are eligible to use their account to access Bridges, the library’s online ebook and electronic audiobook collection.  Residents of Iowa not residing in the physical limits of West Branch or unincorporated Cedar County are required to use their home library’s electronic collections, if available.

Getting a Library Card

(New to the library?  You can start the library card process by filling out the registration information!)

To get a library card, you will need to provide the following at the library:

  • Photo ID
  • Proof of current address (example: water bill, mail you’ve received at your current residence, up-to-date drivers license).
  • If you are are under the age of 14, you will need to have a parent create your card for you.

If you don’t have all of that with you or you’re under 14 but can’t have a parent or guardian make you a card, we offer a Quick Card that will let anyone check out 3 physical items from the library at a time.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
