Policies govern many aspects of Glen Ellyn Public Library and are approved by Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees may modify or amend these policies at any time.

Adult Residents Policy

Last Revised: October 21, 2019

Adults living within the boundaries of Glen Ellyn Public Library District may register for a library card. The library card is free for district residents.

To obtain your library card, come to the Library Services Desk with two forms of identification: one picture ID and one item that shows your name and current address. Options are shown below; please present one form of ID from List A and one from List B.

Adults who are unable to sign or accept financial responsibility for themselves must have someone sign and accept responsibility for them.

List A List B
Valid State ID

Driver’s License


Country ID e.g. Matricula Consular

School ID

Mortgage or lease documents

Current property tax bill

Current month’s statement for credit card, insurance premium, cable television, or other utilities

Current month’s pay stub

Illinois motor vehicle registration


Two months prior to the expiration date of an adult resident’s library card, the library will send a post card to the address on file. As long as the card holder still resides in incorporated Glen Ellyn, their card will be automatically renewed.

Please note: Not all Glen Ellyn addresses are within Glen Ellyn Public Library District. There are two ways to determine within which library district you reside:

  • Your real estate tax bill lists which, if any, library district your taxes support
  • Inquire by contacting Library Services
