Library Cards

To sign-up for a library card patrons need to show some form of ID with a current address at the circulation desk. Examples include: driver's license, a bill, or a student ID. Cards are issued for immediate use and may be used the same day they are issued. Patrons that are 18 and under will need to have a parent or legal guardian complete a permission slip before a card can be issued. Please notify the library if your card is lost or stolen so that we can prevent others from using your card.

The Ethel Everhard Memorial Library is a part of the Winnefox Library System. Library cards issued at the Ethel Everhard Memorial Library will work at any of the thirty public libraries within the Winnefox Library System. A full list of the Winnefox Library System member libraries can be found on their website at

Teacher Cards

Westfield area teachers, homeschool families, daycare teachers, and daycare providers may apply for a teacher card that is separate from their personal library card. This allows  teachers to keep work and personal items separately organized. Items checked out to the teacher card need to be related to educational or classroom use. Teacher cards will not accrue fines. However, the policy does not cover extremely overdue items on a regular basis. Lost and damaged items will still be billed.
