Getting a Library Card

Applying for or renewing a Library card policy


You must live in the Crestwood Public Library District.  The library boundaries do NOT follow the Village of Crestwood boundaries.  Your library district is listed on your real estate tax bill or voter’s registration card. If you live in an unincorporated area, you MUST pay a yearly fee for library services.

If you live in the library district, you need to bring TWO forms of identification with you that show your name and address.  We will need to see : 

           A driver’s license, state I.D. card, high school I.D., or
           other valid picture I.D. with your name and current address.      
           WE DO NOT ACCEPT EXPIRED I.D. CARDS

A recent utility bill (gas, electric, telephone) OR voter's registration
           card, real estate bill, lease, insurance card, or car registration 
           will be accepted if it has your name and current address.
           We do not accept checkbooks as proof of residency.


A child who is under 18 years of age MUST be accompanied by a parent when the child is applying for a library card.  The child must be at least 5 years old and able to print his/her first and last name.  Parental signature is required on the application.  The child’s parent must show TWO forms of identification listed above. 

We will ask to see two forms of identification EVERY 3 YEARS at the time you are renewing your library card.

There are charges for lost library cards.  If there are any overdue books, fines, lost item fees, or lost library card charges on your library record, NO LIBRARY CARD WILL BE ISSUED OR RENEWED UNTIL ALL MONEY IS PAID AND YOUR ACCOUNT IS CLEARED.

ANY SITUATION NOT PROVIDED FOR IN THE FOREGOING POLICY AND PROCEDURE WILL BE RESOLVED BY THE DIRECTOR, CIRCULATION HEAD OR IN THEIR ABSENCE, BY THE LIBRARIAN IN CHARGE.
