Getting a Library Card
Provide a photo ID (driver's license) & a piece of mail with your current school district # 5 or NHP village address, such as a telephone or utility bill. There is $1 fee for each keytag. Replacement cards are $1.00.
Your Hillside Library Card can be used to check out books at every public library in Nassau County.
If you decide to visit another library to borrow an item, please call beforehand to check library hours, lending policies, & if the item you want is indeed on the shelf.
If you do not live in school district # 5 or NHP village:
- And live in an area within Nassau County that is NOT serviced by a library, you may be eligible for a State Mandated Access Card.
- And live outside of Nassau County, you may purchase an annual card & be entitled to privileges at the Hillside Library.
- And live outside of Nassau County and work in the district, you may submit a letter from you employer.
A free Non-Direct Access card will be issued for 1 year and allow cardholders to check out only Hillside Library items. This card may not be used at other Nassau County Libraries. A new letter must be submitted each year for renewal.
- And live outside of Nassau County and own a business in the district, you are entitled to a Direct Access card for 1 year. The card may be renewed annually with proof of updated tax payment.
