Become a Card Holder
To become a member of the Rogers Public Library you will need to provide two items:
• Photo identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.)
• Verification of your current physical address (utility bill, mail, vehicle registration, voter card, checkbook, etc.) Your name must be printed on this item. NOTE: P.O. boxes cannot be used for address verification, but if this is how you receive mail, you will need to provide this as well.
If you live inside the city limits of Rogers, AR, you are assessed a special property tax millage for the Library, and there is no additional fee for you or anyone in your household.
If your residence is outside the city limits of Rogers, AR, you are asked to pay an annual fee of $15.00 per household which is equivalent to the average library millage the citizens of Rogers are paying. NOTE: This is per household, not per card.
Library card accounts are updated on an annual basis from the original date that you receive your card.
Students who live outside the city limits of Rogers are eligible for student cards at a fee of $2.00. These cards are subsidized by the Friends of the Rogers Public Library. The Friends will cover the cost of the student card if needed. Parents/legal guardians need to provide photo identification, verification of current physical address, and sign responsibility for the materials that their child borrows from the library.
Temporary 30 day cards are available at a rate of $5.00, to allow visitors to use the library. Please provide photo identification and proof of address.

Temporary eCard (during COVID-19 closing)
To support our community in Northwest Arkansas and give access to materials while we are closed to the public, we are offering the option to sign up for a temporary eCard account. This is a free temporary account that will allow you to use our digital resources if you do not already have an account with the Rogers Public Library.
When you complete and submit the temporary eCard application, staff will review the form and create the account. You will receive a library card and PIN number by email in 1-3 business days. This account will remain active until August 31. We may extend this expiry date as needed if continued closure is required.
When we reopen, you will be required to come to the library, verify your information, and provide proof of address in order to upgrade to a permanent card. If you live outside of the Rogers City limits, there will be a $15 a year non-resident fee that will be due at that time.
