Every resident of Ashford is eligible to receive a library card from the Babcock Library by showing a current photo ID and proof of current address. This library card may be used in all public libraries that participate in the Connecticard reciprocal borrowing program. Use of a Babcock Library card in another library is subject to the rules of that library.
Residents of other Connecticut towns need to obtain a library card from their hometown library. They are then welcome to use their hometown card at the Babcock Library. This is in accordance with Connecticut State Statutes: Title 11, Section 3a., part e and Connecticut guidelines.
A person who comes to the Babcock Library and does not have a card from his/her hometown library will be allowed to borrow materials under a temporary provisional privilege by showing a current photo ID, proof of local address and proof of home address.
