Any resident of the Shamokin Area School District is eligible for a free library card.   To obtain a card, you must furnish a driver’s license/photo ID or other acceptable proof of residency. Children must be in first grade or above to receive a library card.

Our Library does participate in the AccessPA statewide library card program and will honor cards from other Pennsylvania libraries providing they have a blue AccessPA sticker.
