Library cards for residents under age 18

Residents under 18 years old may have an individual borrower’s card. The parents/legal guardian of residents under age 18 must sign the minor’s application and provide the required residency verification in person.

Resident accounts are automatically renewed after a period of three (3) years or until a minor’s 18th birthday.

When a juvenile account reaches $20 in charges, the borrowing privileges of the responsible party are also blocked until payment is made to bring total under $20.

Lost library cards

Lost or stolen library cards should be reported to the Library immediately to prevent unauthorized use. The cardholder is responsible for all items checked out on their lost or stolen card along with any fines, fees, or damages incurred prior to the date the library is notified. 

Library cards for non-residents

Non-residents who are not served by another public library may acquire a library card by paying a fee based on property valuation, comparable to the costs paid by residents of the Village of Carol Stream.
