Your Library Card
In order to receive an Athena library card, you must...
Children too young to have a library card may check out materials only when accompanied by an approved parent/ guardian who has a valid library card from Athena or another Sage system library.
An Athena library card is accepted at all other Sage system libraries. If you live in the 97813 Zip Code area and you have a card issued by another Sage system library, please give it to us when you sign up for your Athena account. We will notify your former library of your change of address so your previous account can be closed.
LOST CARD: If your library card becomes lost or unreadable, there is a $3.00 replacement card fee.
The application form is short and easy to fill out. Your new library account & card will be ready for use a few minutes after you complete your application.
ADULTS: Bring your current Oregon driver's license or photo ID. If your license/ID card is out of date, you will need to bring two documents: one showing your current address (a current utility bill, rental agreement, bank statement, etc.) and a photo ID (driver’s license, student ID, state ID, passport, etc). You may also be asked to provide other information that will help the system create an account for you.
MINORS: Minor children are not required to have photo ID to apply for a library card, but they must have a legal guardian sign and complete the card application.
