Library cards are free to City of Middleton residents 18 years and older. (If you are under 18, a parent or legal guardian must be present when a library card is issued and they are responsible for any lost/missing items not returned to the library.)
Please bring your photo ID with you to the library. If it does not have your current address on it, please also bring something else printed with your current address on it. This could be a bank statement, car registration, car or homeowners insurance card, City of Middleton utility bill, Idaho Power bill, etc.
If you live outside of Middleton city limits, the annual fee is $40 per family per year or $20 per year for seniors 62 or older.*
Did you know that when you live within the Middleton City limits, part of your property taxes go to the library? So, if you do not live within City limits, none of your taxes go toward the support of the library. To be equitable, we have to charge those that live outside of City limits.
In most cases, if you do not receive a City of Middleton utility bill each month for water, sewer and garbage you are not within City limits. You can also check your property tax bill to see if part of your taxes go to the City of Middleton or we can look up your address in the Canyon County record system to determine if your address is within City limits.
*The new non-resident fees listed above are effective June 1, 2022.
NOTE: During the summer months until August 15, 2022, those students who live outside Middleton city limits but attend a Middleton School District School (or are homeschooled) can request a free “Summer Only” library card. A parent or guardian must apply for the card if the student is under 18.
