Cards for Permanent Residents

All permanent residents of Hibbing are eligible for a free borrower's card. This includes both adults and children. For purposes of this policy, a "resident" is defined as a person who lives within the city limits of Hibbing. People who live in nearby communities and in rural counties of the Arrowhead Library System (ALS), and who do not have an ALS library borrower's card may apply for a library borrower's card at our library. Students from out-of-town who attend Hibbing Community College qualify as "residents" of Hibbing, Minnesota.

The replacement fee for a lost or stolen borrower's card is $3.00.

Hibbing Public Library will issue a library borrower's card to residents who provide:

  1. Proof of identity:
    • Valid driver's license (Minnesota, or out-of-state) or
