Getting a Library Card

new-library-card-adults Children age 14 and older living with a parent or legal guardian may use the parent’s or legal guardian’s proof of residence until they obtain qualifying proof of residency in their own names.

Library cards will be issued to children age 13 and under residing in the incorporated boundaries of the Village of Orland Park with the signature of the parent or legal guardian.

 

 

Residents must provide a valid driver’s license or state ID with their Orland Park current address. If the driver’s license or state ID does not have the Orland Park address, a second document (from the list below) showing their Village of Orland Park address must be shown:

  • Current car registration
  • Natural gas, water or electric bill received in the last three (3) months
  • Current lease agreement
  • Property deed
  • Most recent property tax bill
  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express billing statement received in the last three (3) months

Application forms must be completed and signed in person and verified by a library staff member. Library cards are valid for five years from the date of issuance.

Pre-register for a Library Card

Residents of the Village of Orland Park may pre-register for a free Orland Park Public Library card online and place holds on materials.

Non-Resident Library Cards

Fees are determined by the tax bill method, where the library’s current tax rate is multiplied times the equalized assessed valuation appearing on the applicant’s most recent tax bill.

Non-residents have the option of choosing a 6 month, 9 month or 1 year library card. Fees will be calculated as described above applying a 50%, 75%, or full cost payment accordingly.

Non-residents are eligible to apply and pay for a non-resident card if they reside within one of Orland Park’s school districts. See Illinois’s non-resident library card code.

Check the library’s Circulation Policy (PDF) and Reciprocal Borrowers FAQ Page for more information.
