Library Cards

Library cards are free to citizens who reside or own property within the Joshua ISD. If you reside outside the Joshua ISD, there is a non-resident fee of $25 per year beginning September 1, 2020. A valid state issued driver's license or valid state issued identification card are required along with a secondary proof of residency.

Books, audiobooks, and DVDs can be checked out for up to two weeks. Items can be renewed only one time, with the exception of those items with a waiting reserve. 

Fines

Overdue items are 10 cents per day per item. 

ILLs

Interlibrary loans are available for items not found in our collection. This service is available for library card holders in good standing.
