The Dallas Immigration Justice Campaign invites you to get yours today!
The Enhanced Library Card is a Dallas Public Library card that has a person’s name, picture,
Date of birth and address. TOP members are working with the City of Dallas to get it to be used as a supplement with other documents to prove your identity. You will need to check with organizations/entities with which you would like to use the Enhanced Library Card as part of establishing your identity to determine if/how the Enhanced Library Card can be used for this purpose.
As of 04/26/23 it is accepted as a form of ID by the Dallas Court and The Dallas WIC office.
What do I need to bring with me to apply for a library card?
A photo ID is preferred, and physical address verification proving Dallas residency is required to receive a library card.
What if I do not have a photo ID, can I still apply for a card?
The Dallas Library accepts a letter from an agency or government entity that states that you do not have a photo ID. They ask that this letter is the original, be on a letterhead of the agency/government entity, provide your name and state that you do not have a photo ID, and to be signed by a staff member of the agency/government entity.
(Accepted agencies/government entities: shelters, caseworkers, any City of Dallas department, State of Texas agency, City Square, Our Calling and Stewpot).
