Yes, your library card identifies you to us. It also allows us to quickly access your record and ensures that items are being charged out to the right person. It is for this reason that we ask that a library card be presented each time you check out materials. When you phone the library you should have your library card handy.

Library cards are issued free of charge. All that is necessary is proof of your current address. The signature of a parent/guardian is required in order to obtain a library card for a child under 13 years of age. The Rockland Memorial library is a member of the Old Colony Library Network, and your card may be used at any of the member libraries.
Materials borrowed from other libraries may have different loan periods.
When returning items to the circulation desk, please place items on the counter, not the cart, to ensure they will be properly checked in. You may return items to the book drop, the children’s room or any of the other libraries in the Old Colony Library Network, unless otherwise noted on the items.
Most materials may be renewed once. Videos, magazines and materials that are on hold for other patrons may not be renewed. You may renew items at the circulation desk, over the phone with your library card number or online.
Fines are no longer charged on overdue books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs owned by the Rockland Library.
Please note that some other libraries still charge fines on these items, and items belonging to these libraries will still accrue fines if returned late (This is determined by which library owns the item, not where it's checked out or returned).
If you lose books or other items charged out to you, you will be charged the replacement cost of the items.
Call the Library if you lose you card. If someone else used it to check out items, they would be on your account. Replacing a card costs $1 and requires an ID.
