Who Can Apply
Any Georgian who is at least 18 years of age may receive a PINES card by showing a valid state-issued picture ID and by providing proof of residence with a correct street address.
Residents under the age of 18 need a parent or legal guardian present to apply for a library card.
PINES
PINES is an initiative to institute a statewide library card for the State of Georgia. Over 275 libraries from across the state share access to their library holdings through an automated library catalog.
The PINES database lists all items owned by participating libraries, and all PINES library patrons may borrow material from any PINES library. The library catalog is accessible through the library’s website or at www.gapines.org.
