The Johnson County Auditor’s Office will begin accepting applications for Community ID cards Friday July 17 at 1:00 PM.
UPDATE 7/14/15: Here’s a link to the online application for the new Community ID Cards.
We are excited about the program and hope this will encourage members of our community to use their Community ID card to get at Library Card.
It’s easy to get a Library Card and only takes a couple minutes. The online application is available at http://www.icpl.org/cards/get-a-card/ It works great to sign-up online at home or you can complete an online application at the Library at any of the catalog terminals.
Once you’ve registered online, stop by the Help Desk to pick up your Library Card.
Adults and students in 7th grade and older should be prepared to show photo identification and proof of your residence address. A Community ID card or Driver’s License fulfils the requirement for both if the current address is listed. Other documents that work for proof of address include a lease, voter registration card, mail with a current post mark or pre-printed checks from a bank.
Students in 6th grade or younger should be accompanied by a parent or guardian who will be asked to show a photo ID and proof of current address.
Three Cheers for the new Community ID program and everyone who made this possible! We look forward to seeing these ID cards at the Library.

An Iowa City Public Library card is your child’s ticket to ride an Iowa City Transit bus free this summer.
The Library will provide free bus rides to children through 12th grade, and the adult caregivers who are with them, on any Iowa City Transit bus route, from the day after Iowa City Schools dismiss until the day before school starts, on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Eligible bus riders should show their Iowa City Public Library card to the bus driver to gain free access to the bus.
Children can catch a ride home anytime the same day with a Ride & Read bus pass, issued by showing a Library Card at any public service desk at the Library.
Parents, if your child doesn’t have an Iowa City Public Library card, visit www.icpl.org/cards/ for information about how to apply for a card. Applications can be completed online, then stop by the Help Desk within two weeks to pick up your card. You can also apply in person at the Help Desk any time the Library is open. Adults, please be prepared to show photo identification (current driver’s license, lease or passport) and proof of your resident address (current driver’s license, mail with a current post mark; current lease). Photo identification is not required for children.
For more information, please call the Library at (319) 356-5200.
