Does anyone know if you can buy a library card for someone else?  I know that the fee is $35 a year and I thought it would make a great Christmas gift for my dad.  Could a buy him a year long library card?

I don't see why not. The only thing they actually use the mailing address for is to send you the card. I just renewed mine and wrote in my email and they emailed me that I had been renewed, so I should think you could sign him up and use your address so you get the card and can wrap it.

BTW, it took about 10 days to process my renewal, so you may want to do earlier than later on that.

Coming late to the message but just a reminder that if your dad is a military veteran then it's free.

"Veterans and members of the Armed Services can also obtain a Free Library card without charge."
