    Am I able to come by the library and register my granddaughter as a member without bringing her? I am giving her a kindle for Christmas and would like to provide her with a library card. She does have an email account and is in the 5th grade at Albertville.

      Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, you can come make her a card as long as you are willing to be the responsible party on her card. Or you can have a parent or guardian download the “New Patron Application” form from our website and fill it out. It is located under our Services tab on the website.
