Marks-Quitman County Library Card Requirements

To obtain a permanent Library card with the Marks-Quitman County Library, the new Library patron needs to  present one (1) picture ID (identification) that shows the Library patron lives in Quitman County, Mississippi.

Acceptable Picture ID (identification) are:

  • Driver's License
  • School or College ID
  • State Issued ID
  • Selective Service Card

If the new Library patron does not have a Picture ID (Identification), the new Library patron can present two (2) proofs of living (of residency) in Quitman County, Mississippi.

Acceptable Proofs of Living (of Residency) are:

  • Current utility bill with name and address
  • Checkbook with name and address
  • Current tax receipt
  • Apartment or house lease
  • Mortgage document
  • Filed homestead exemption
  • Automobile registration
  • Voter registration card with address
  • Envelopes with name, address, and current postmark (within 30 days)

The Dancing Rabbit Consortium card (from surrounding libraries) is accepted at the Marks-Quitman County Library in Marks.  As such, the new Library patron can use the Dancing Rabbit card (from the surrounding libraries), until the new Library patron can meet the requirements for a permanent Library card.

A prospective new Library patron also can request a temporary Library card, which will be good for one month. 

Library visitors from other counties and/or out of state are issued the same temporary Library card until the permanent Library card is obtained.
