Who qualifies for a free library card?

Anyone who lives or owns property in Dover-Foxcroft qualifies for a free Thompson Free Library card. All students and educators at SeDoMoCha and Foxcroft Academy also qualify, as do local businesses and nonprofits.  

How do I get a library card?

It’s easy to get a library card! Just complete an application (forms are available at the library) and present a valid ID.

  • Residents and property owners:  If your ID does not have a current Dover-Foxcroft address, we also need proof of your residency or taxpayer status, such as a recent utility bill, rent receipt, vehicle registration, piece of mail, or tax bill.
  • Students and educators: Please bring a school ID, report card, or other paperwork showing student or educator status.
  • Businesses and nonprofits: The library is happy to partner with community organizations to provide materials, resources, and information. [Application for Business or Nonprofit]

What if I live out of town?

Non-resident library memberships are available for an annual fee of $20.

How old do I have to be to get a library card?

Children age 5 and older can register for a library card. Minors under age 14 must have a parent or guardian co-sign their library card application. The co-signer is responsible for fines and fees associated with the card.

Please note: The Thompson Free Library does not withhold access to materials from any cardholder regardless of age.

Can we get a family card?

Library cards are issued in one name only. However, non-resident cardholders may authorize additional family borrowers on their account.

Please see our Circulation Policy for more information about using your library card.
