questions about the process, please feel free to contact Jenna Ross at email@example.com.

- Step 2 – Pick up card in person
Be sure to bring 1 gov’t issue photo ID and 1 other form of ID with name on

- Step 3 – Check out books to see
if card has been activated.

they are close to your home or work. Before visiting another library to purchase
