How to Obtain A Library Card

A Lawton Public Library card is necessary to borrow library materials. Individuals may apply for a card at either the Main Library or the Branch.

Individuals living in Comanche County for six months or more areĀ eligible for a regular library card.

The Lawton Public Library has four types of library cards:

  • Resident Cards
  • University Student Cards
  • Non-Resident Cards
  • Temporary Cards

An applicant is required to verify:

  • proof of identity with a government issued photo ID and
  • proof of residency.
  • A current driver's license will suffice for both proof of identity and residency.
  • Other acceptable ways to prove residency include current (within the last 30 days):
  • mortgage payment coupon, rent receipt, or lease agreement
  • utility bill received by mail
  • bank statement
  • payroll check with printed address
  • printed check
  • letter received by mail

Don't Forget to Renew your Library Carrd

Your library card needs to be renewed once a year. A valid library card is required for OverDrive and Zinio.
