Your library card opens a million doors.
To register for a VPL card you will need some form of ID and proof of address, like a non personal piece of mail. If you do not have that, the library can send you a postcard. Bring it back to the library as proof of address. Until then, you can use your new library card with some limitations. Kids 15 and younger or without a form of ID must register with their parents or guardians as the responsible party.
If you reside outside of Wisconsin, there is a fee $35 annual fee for a VPL card. This is the equivalent of the amount of taxes Ashland property owners pay to support the public library.
See the registration policy for further information.
