3001 Borrowing Privileges

ImagineIF Libraries will extend borrowing privileges to all residents of the State of Montana as well as to those persons who are temporarily residing in Flathead County. In order to borrow materials, persons must be in possession of an ImagineIF library card or a library card from a participating Partner Resource Sharing Group library.

Obtaining a Library Card
Photo identification and verification of a current Montana address are required to obtain a library card. A library card will be issued when a valid Montana Driver’s License or a Montana State ID card verifying current address is presented.

If a potential borrower is not in possession of the above, a current photo identification card (that includes name and photo) from a school, government agency, or employer AND address verification, that includes name and Montana address, must be presented.

A limited-use card will be issued to those persons who can provide a current photo ID but do not have proof of Montana address.

A parent or caregiver assumes responsibility for materials borrowed by their dependents. A parent or caregiver ID is required for applicants under the age of 16 and for those dependents not having their own photo ID.
