People often ask us, “How old does my child have to be to get a library card?”
Our answer is, “They have to be born.”
It’s true! All Stratford residents, regardless of their age, can get a library card.

There are 3 levels of library cards:
• Kids PreK-5th grade
• Teens Grades 6-12
• Adult
Parents will fill out the library card application for their child. Teens can complete the application themselves.
