Any resident of the Town of Berthoud, a student or teacher in the Berthoud public schools, a company/business located in Berthoud or a resident of the surrounding library service area may obtain a Berthoud Community Library District card.  Library cards are issued at no charge.


In order for a patron to receive a library card, they must fill out an application.  If the patron is under 18 years of age, a parent must be present at the time of filling out the application, as well as signing it.  Children may not  take applications home to fill out.


The applicant must have proof of residency by one of the following methods; a valid Colorado driver’s license, pre-printed checks, canceled mail, utility bill, car registration, school or record ID.


Once the application has been completely filled out and residency verified, the applicant may begin to use their card.  The first time the applicant uses their card, they are restricted to checking out 3 total items.  Once these items are returned, they may check out as many items as the BPL policy allows.


Lost cards- Replacement cards cost $1.00.
