Get a library card
Your library card opens up our rich collections, programming, and resources. Any Skokie resident can apply for a card. We also have options for businesses, teachers, residents of other suburbs and the city of Chicago.
Browse the collection in person and check out materials using a self-serve kiosk or by visiting a help desk. Cardholders may also request items to be reserved for pickup either at the library or on the bookmobile.
What to Expect
During the pandemic, visiting the library will feel a little different. There are safety procedures and guidelines that we all need to follow.
