Library Cards
Geneva Public Library issues library cards free of charge to all who reside within the Geneva city limits, and/or within the Chelsea, Geneva, Madison, or Stanton townships in Fillmore County.  Library cards expire one year after they are granted, and each year subsequently; and may be renewed if the patron is in good standing with a check of their contact information.

Those who reside outside of Geneva city limits or in townships not mentioned above may obtain a library card for an annual fee of $20.

If you participate in the NebrasKard program through your home library, you may obtain a Geneva Public Library card free of charge.
