Library Cards
Patrons need a Millington Public Library card to check out items and use the public access computers. Cards are available for free to Millington city tax payers only. Users outside of Milington are charged a fee of $35 per year or $5 per month. Military personnel with a valid military I.D. are waived card fees as are Millington school teachers . This does not apply to family members. Lost cards can be replaced for $1. If you do not have your card we need to see a photo I.D.

As of January 1, 2014, only Patrons who pay Millington taxes, are teachers at Millington schools or active military are allowed free cards. Shelby county is no longer exempt and must pay the $35 fee.
