Getting a Library Card

A Henry County Library Card is your key to a world of fun and information. With your card you can check out books, graphic novels, audiobooks, playaways, cake pans, jig saw puzzles and even fishing equipment! You can also use your card to access our computers (see computer use policy under policies tab) in the library or use our databases and check out ebooks and eaudiobooks from the comfort of your home.
