Gateway and Reciprocal Cards
A Saline County Library card in good standing makes available to its owner the Gateway Card. A Gateway card can be attained for use in public libraries in Central Arkansas.
The following counties have agreed to participate in the Gateway Program with approval from the Library Boards of Trustees:
To apply for a Gateway card, the applicant must be a patron “in good standing” meaning that the applicant must have had a card at the Saline County Library for a period of time and have no outstanding long overdue materials. By policy, no one can have a Gateway card unless they are 14 year of age or older.
There is a $10.00 charge for replacement of a lost Gateway card. It will need to be reissued by the home library. Gateway cards expire one year after issuance.
Citizens of Garland County, Grant, and Hot Spring County can apply for a Saline County Library Card in the same manner as a resident per a special reciprocal agreement by the three library boards. Due to the cooperative agreement, the $10.00 Non-Resident fees are waved and the Gateway Card Application is not necessary.
