How does it work?

At home and need a library card? We can help. We are currently able to issue temporary library cards to anyone with a Northbrook address, including unincorporated areas.

Here's how to apply for a temporary library card:

  1. Complete the application below.
  2. Give us 24 hours to review your application and create your card.
  3. After your card is created, we'll email your card number and PIN to you.

The card will expire on March 21, 2021. If you want to keep your card, just come into the library to convert it to a permanent card. Review our information about getting a library card to learn more.
