I got my library card today

September is the perfect time to sign up or renew your library card! 

What’s the most important card in your wallet? The answer might surprise you: it’s your library card! It gives you easy access to the latest titles, meeting and study room reservations, online resources, and much more. Getting a card is easy. You can visit the library to apply or renew, or visit to learn how to get a card.

In addition to Northbrook residents, Northbrook businesses, teachers, and au pairs may also be eligible to get a card. For residents of unincorporated Northbrook, our Cards for Kids and Cards for U.S. Veterans programs may make it possible to get a card at no cost. Other residents of unincorporated Northbrook have the option to purchase a library card.
