How to Get a Library Card

  • People living outside the MetrOPAC cities may apply for a non-resident card by presenting valid identification and proof of residency. This card is only valid for the Haltom City Public Library. Materials from the MetrOPAC libraries and through interlibrary loan are not available to non-residents.
  • Statewide TexShare cards are available for Haltom City residents.

Fines & Fees

Haltom City charges 20¢ per day for each book that is overdue. The other MetrOPAC libraries have different charges. If your total fines are over $5, or you have materials overdue, your borrowing privileges may be suspended. Once all fines have been paid and materials have been returned, your privileges will be reinstated. The Haltom City Public Library can accept payments for the other MetrOPAC libraries. Payment by credit card may be made through your account online. The library requires a $15.00 refundable deposit to check out the following materials: ASVAB, GED & SAT study guides. This deposit will be refunded upon return of these items in good condition.

 Book Pick-Up/Return

The drive through pick-up window allows patrons to pick up reserve materials (books, movies, audios) without leaving the car. Please call first to arrange to pick up items at the window. The telephone number is 817 222-7787. All library materials can be returned in the drive through book return at any time. Both pick-up and return windows may be found on the west side of the building

MetrOPAC

We are part of the MetrOPAC library agreement. Haltom City residents may use their Haltom City Library card to borrow from other MetrOPAC libraries as if they were residents of the other cities. The other MetrOPAC cities are Benbrook, Burleson, Fort Worth and Richland Hills.

We also receive deliveries from the MetrOPAC libraries four times each week. Books and movies are sent to us by request for our residents to pick up. The rules of the other library must be followed when borrowing their items.

Interlibrary Loans

We can ask other libraries to send us books and other library material from around the world. If you want something that cannot be found locally, ask us about it. To find out what we can request, check the WorldCat world catalog. A $3.00 charge for postage will be added per item.
