Apply for a library card

Library cards are free. With one, you can borrow materials and use our online services. Just complete this application and stop by the the west Checkout Desk to pick up your card. 

Be sure to bring one piece of identification that shows your name, photo, and current Skokie address. Acceptable pieces of identification include a driver's license or state I.D. with photo.

Library privileges will be available to you once you've come in to pick up your card and we verify your identification. We keep online applications for one month.

If you are younger than 14, a parent or guardian must accompany you when you pick up your library card. Your parent or guardian must show one piece of identification with their own name, photo, and current Skokie address.

If you have had a Skokie Public Library card during the last three years, this form is not for you. Please come to the west Checkout Desk if you need to replace a lost card.
