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.

Unincorporated (Non) Residents Policy

Last Revised: October 21, 2019

Some residents who live in unincorporated Glen Ellyn or in unincorporated towns other than Glen Ellyn who have a student attending school in District 41 or District 89 or at Glenbard South or Glenbard West may qualify for the Open Books Open Doors library card subsidy program.

Individuals living outside the incorporated Village of Glen Ellyn may purchase a library card for an annual fee determined by their current property assessment or their annual rent and the library’s current tax rate. To be eligible for a Glen Ellyn non-resident card, your principal residence must be:

  • In Glen Ellyn School District 41
  • In Glen Ellyn School District 89
  • Closer to Glen Ellyn Public Library than any other public library

When applying for a card, the applicant must present a current tax bill or lease and a picture ID from List A. The annual unincorporated library card fee will be calculated as follows.

  • Homeowner: Net Taxable Value (shown on current property tax bill) times the library’s current tax rate
  • Renter: Monthly rent times 15%

Individuals renting a room or partial living space with no formal lease agreement will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applicants will be charged a fee and must present a picture ID from List A and a current bill that includes their name and address.

Presentation of the appropriate tax document and a picture ID from List A is also required when renewing; cards must be renewed annually.
