Library Cards

A library card is your passport to all of our services! All guests are welcome to apply for a library card regardless of residency. To apply for a card, please bring a photo ID and see a librarian at the desk for assistance.

There is no charge for new patrons registering for a card, however replacement cards are available for $2.



Wifi is available to the general public at the Library. To connect your device select the Basalt Public network. No password is required.

Public desktop and laptop computers are available for patron use. Patrons will need a valid library card to logon to a computer. Guests may purchase a guest pass at the front desk for $1. Computer sessions are 2 hours, but patrons may request more time.

The library has 1 iMac with MS Office software. All other Library PCs run Windows 7.

To both protect user privacy and the computer system's security, users are advised that all public computers are erased upon reboot. Any data collected or stored on the machine will be deleted when a patron logs off.
