FAQs

How to get a library card:

Bring a current photo ID and proof of your current address in order to get a card. The following documents can be used as proof of address:

  • A valid photo ID
  • A lease, rental, or housing agreement
  • A utility bill
  • A piece of mail addressed to your name
  • A current bank statement

If you don't have any of the above, we can send a postcard to your home that you can then use as proof of address. 

If you have a library card from any of the NEKLS member libraries, you are already authorized to use Leavenworth Public Library.

How to access the internet at the library:

With your library card, you are entitled to two hours of time each day on our Internet terminals. In order to access them, you will need your library card number and your 4-digit PIN. If you do not know one or both of these numbers, please check with the circulation staff. 

For out-of-town or temporary visitors, 15-minute guest passes are available with a valid photo ID. Inquire at the reference desk.

We also have free wi-fi available throughout the building. We offer laptaps that can be checked out with a library card for up to one day for in-house use. Laptops connect to the Internet through the wi-fi network.
