Randleman Public Library: FAQ - Library Card

Frequently Asked Questions



To get a library card you must first register in-person. At your first check out,  you are limited to two items. Your first library card and any future replacement cards are issued free. A valid photo identification is required to replace a card and any outstanding amounts owed must be paid before a new card may be issued. 


  • Must be a resident of North Carolina.
  • At least 16 years of age.
  • Present a valid North Carolina driver's license or other positive (picture) identification showing your current address.  

If your identification does not show your current address, you must provide something that has been mailed to your name at your current address. If you are between the ages of five and fifteen, a parent or legal guardian must co-sign for your card.

Students age 5 through 18 currently in the Randolph County School System, the Asheboro City School System, or  Uwharrie Charter are automatically issued a free digital library card through the REAL 2 (Randolph Education Access for Limitless Learning) program. With this program, the students'  library card numbers are their student ID numbers; their PIN numbers are the month and day of their birthday. This card allows up to 10 books out at a time.  DVDs cannot be checked out with a REAL 2 account. As with other library cards, the only fees assessed to these cards are lost item and damage charges. 

You must present your physical library card or your card on the library's mobile app to check out physical materials.
