Obtaining a card
A free library card is available to any resident of Bridgton, as well as other non-residents. Proof of identity by valid photo ID with current address is required — a tax or rent receipt, or piece of mail are all acceptable proof of address.
Children may get their own library card at age 5 or beginning kindergarten, with a parent or guardian’s signature. Adult cards are issued at age 16. Please show your library card whenever you wish to check out materials.
