Getting a Library Card
Library cards are available at no cost to those living in the library district. If unsure to which library district you belong, a district boundary map is available here.

Children must be at least 5 years old to receive a library card. Children 5-17 need a parent or guardian to fill out the card application.

To receive a library card, patrons must present:

  • ONE photo ID AND
  • ONE form of documentation confirming address
A current Drivers License or State ID may be used as either the photo ID or address confirmation. Another piece of documentation (checkbook, passport, bill, etc.) must also be presented.

The library is able to register library patrons from Plainfield and Joliet library districts.

Contact the Circulation desk if you have any questions or for more information.
