Checking out books at the Morehead City Library is as easy as signing up to be a patron. Any staff member will be able to provide you with the necessary application form. The Morehead City Library requires that you have a photo id with your current address or, if you're new to the area, a utility bill with your new address along with your photo ID. Since moving to the Apollo Circulation system the Morehead City Library now issues actual cards. Patron data is stored on the computer. This library is not part of the County Library System so those cards are not valid at the Morehead City Library.
Fees for overdue books are 10 cents a day per overdue item. By signing up to be a patron, you agree to follow the Morehead City Library Rules and Regulations and to notify us of any change of address.
The best way to renew a book is to visit the online catalog and log into your account and renew or request an item. You may also call the library at 252-726-3765, stop by the library circulation desk, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. E-mails should have “renew book” as the subject and you should include your name, the title of the book, and the current due date. Books can be renewed one time for an additional 3 weeks
There are several rooms at the Morehead City Library available for parties and meetings. Use of the rooms is without charge unless the event occurs after hours or if your event is for profit. The fee is $20 per hour for after-hours use. For money-making events, terms will be negotiated by the Director. Please call the library at 252-726-3765 for further information.

Support can come in many forms: Membership in the Friends of the Library, financial donations, and magazine subscriptions are some ways to support the library. Volunteering, serving on special events committees, and supporting specific programs are ways to be more personally involved with the Morehead City Library.
The Morehead City Library has several computers for public use. There are four in the computer lab for adult use. Computer usage is on a first-come basis with a 30-minute limit. Print-outs are available for 15 cents a page. Also, since the library is wi-fi connected, you are welcome to bring your laptop.
