How do I get a library card?

Anyone who resides in the State of Texas may obtain a free library card at Moore Memorial Public Library. Children under 14 must have a parent or legal guardian sign their library card application. Requests for new library cards must be made in person at the library circulation desk. Applicants will be asked to fill out a library card application and to show as proof of their current address:

  • A valid Texas driver’s license or identification card with a current address

    or one of the following:

  • Any piece of mail addressed to the applicant that has been received at their current address
  • A printed utility bill or statement that includes the applicant’s current address

For more information, please call 409-643-5975.

Renewing checked-out items
Renewals may be done by phone at 409-643-5975, or by logging into the library catalog. You must enter your 14-digit library card number (PMML0000XXXXXX) and the pin number, which is your birth date (MMDDYYYY).

Placing a hold
To place a hold, you can call us at 409-643-5975 or log into the library catalog online and do it yourself. You must enter your 14-digit library card number (PMML0000XXXXXX) and the pin number, which is your birth date (MMDDYYYY).

Replacement library cards

Replacement library cards cost $2. If the patron does not have a current address on file with the library, they must verify their new address by any of the methods listed under the “How do I get a library card?” section of this web page. If you have lost a library card or believe it may have been stolen, please notify us immediately and we will disable the card.


Refunds (for materials paid for and then found) may be made within one year of the date indicated on the borrower's receipt. Refunds may be made when the lost item is accompanied by the original receipt. However, processing charges and fines are non-refundable.
