What is "preferred name" on the San José Public Library card membership application?


The term "preferred name" refers to the name that you want us to use for you. It might be different from your legal name.

When you come in to get your Full Access (physical) library card, we will collect your legal name. Your legal name should be listed on your valid photo ID.

If you are in middle or high school, you can use your student ID. If you are younger than middle school, you will need to bring your parent/guardian with you to make the change.
