Who Can Get a Card?
Residents of Craighead and Poinsett counties (with the exception of residents living within the Trumann city limits) may get a Crowley Ridge Regional Library Card. This card can be used at any of the libraries in our region: Jonesboro, Caraway, Monette, Lake City, Harrisburg, Marked Tree, Weiner and Lepanto.
If you live outside our service area or within Trumann city limites, you may be eligible for a card through the Gateway Project, a collection-sharing program that provides free library services to Northeast Arkansas residents who live in ceratin counties. To qualify for Gateway access, you must have a card and be in good standing with your local library. Visit the library and talk to a staff member for more information about getting a Gateway Card.
