The Payson Public Library has scheduled the following events:
September is "Library Card Sign-up" Month. Get your library card now!
What do I need to get a library card? It's so easy.
If you are a resident of Payson or the surrounding area (Star Valley, Pine, Strawberry, Rye, Gisela, Tonto Basin, Christopher Creek, Forest Lakes, Heber and Happy Jack), you are eligible to get a free Payson Public Library card.
You will need: to be at least 18 years or older (children must have the signature of a parent or guardian), a valid photo ID, proof of a current Gila County mailing address (this can be a utility bill, rent receipt, etc.), driver's license, provide date of birth, name of a local reference (not living in your household).
There is no fee to get a library card. Once you have a card, if it is lost there is a $1 replacement fee. You will need to present your card in order to check out any items.
