Lending Policy

Library cards are issued free of charge to residents of Griggs County or those who own land in Griggs County. Proof of residence or land ownership and mailing address shall be required of all persons requesting a library card.  Library patron or patron refers to anyone who holds a library card from the Griggs County Public Library. 

All other persons who do not reside in Griggs County or own land in Griggs County will pay an annual fee established by the Library Board of Directors.   

Acceptance of a library card assumes that you will be responsible for charges for lost or damaged items checked out with your library card.  No person may use another card without prior permission from the person.  The permission may be by telephone to the library or in writing.

A person age 17 or younger must have a parent or guardian request a library card for them.  The parent or guardian is responsible for the return or replacement of all materials checked out by the underage patron.  The parent or guardian’s name is listed with the underage patron.

Transient residents must make a refundable deposit equal to the approximate replacement value for items borrowed from the library plus a non-refundable library card fee.  Their name and permanent address must be recorded from a picture identification card.
