How To Get a Library Card

Library cards are issued free to residents of the
Grayslake Area Public Library District.

Applicants must present two pieces of identification showing name and current address, one of which also shows a signature. Parents or legal guardians must verify the identity of children who are under high school age and must sign the child's application. Library cards are issued for a period of three years and may be renewed upon verification of continued residency by showing two forms of identification with name and address.

A patron shall use only their own resident library card for any and all library transactions including, but not limited to, circulation functions, program registration and other library services. Patrons may give written permission for others to access their accounts.

If you lose your card, please call and report it to the circulation desk immediately so we can update your account. There will be a cost for a replacement card.
