Library Cards for Reciprocal Borrowers and Non-Residents:

If you do not qualify for a resident library card, you can get a free limited-use Reciprocal Borrowing card if you pay library taxes to a library that is a member of the Library Consortium of Eastern Idaho or to a library who has a reciprocal borrowing agreement with the Madison Library District.

If you do not currently pay a library tax to our library, or if you pay a library tax to a library not currently participating in our Reciprocal Borrowing agreement, you can purchase a non-resident card for $80 per family per year, $44 per family for 6 months, or $24 per family for 3 months.
