If you live in the Town of Bedford and have a Katonah mailing address, just bring in a photo ID (driver’s license, current passport, state employee ID card) with Katonah address, and we’ll issue you a card on the spot. Children under 16 must bring a parent or legal guardian. The minimum age for acquiring a card is age 5. (Children should be able to write their first name.)
If you live elsewhere in Westchester, we can direct you to your home library in the town where you pay your residential taxes. If you live outside of Westchester, but work, own land, attend school, or pay taxes in Westchester, you can go to the library supported by your (or your employer’s) tax dollars. If all else fails, the Westchester Library System will provide you with full library service for $75 per year.
