Getting a Library Card

Library cards are issued free to residents living within the corporate limits of the Village of Orland Park. 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 residence 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 a parent or legal guardian. The child must be accompanied by the parent or legal guardian with whom they reside and meet the residency requirement.

Cards are issued for a period of five years. Effective May 18, 2015, two forms of identification are required when applying for a library card or when renewing an expired card.

Residents must provide a valid driver’s license or state ID with current address and one of the following listing their Village of Orland Park address:

  • 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

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

People living in areas untaxed for library services may obtain a card by paying a fee determined by multiplying the current library tax rate times the equalized assessed valuation on the applicant’s tax bill. Cards will be issued for one year to all members of the homeowner’s immediate family living at that address.
