Residents of all ages living within FVRL's library district (Klickitat, Skamania, or Clark counties outside Camas city limits, and Woodland or Yale Valley Library District) are eligible for a card free of charge. Others may be eligible for a free, reciprocal card or purchase a non-resident card. Take a look at the various types of cards and their privilege levels to find the one for which you are eligible. Then apply using one of the methods below.
1. Apply now for an eCard
Complete the registration form to get immediate access to our digital collection including eBooks & eAudio*, eResources, music* and streaming video*. Use of physical materials is excluded, although you may place two holds on physical items. You may upgrade to an Everything card by visiting a library. eCards are limited to residents of the FVRL service district who don't already have a card.
2. Apply in person for an Everything Card
