All residents of Gibsonville and the surrounding areas are eligible for a free library card. You will need to bring a photo ID and proof of your current address if the information on your ID is not up to date. A piece of mail or an official document like a utility bill, vehicle registration or a lease agreement can be used to prove your current address.
You can register for your library card online before you visit, or print out a library card application to complete and bring with you on your first visit.
Children may receive their own card with a parent or legal guardian who will be financially responsible for any fines for lost or damaged materials checked out in the child’s name. You will need to bring your library card with you when checking out library materials.

The Gibsonville Public Library conducted a community needs assessment in the summer and fall of 2016 in order to gather feedback from our service population. We used this information to craft a plan of action for our library, taking into account what the community appreciates about current services, what we could be doing better, and what we need to focus on in the future.
The board of alderman approved the library’s strategic plan in October 2017.
The plan is available to view online here.
