Get a Library Card

Library cards are issued to residents of Itasca.  A resident is defined as: Any person who has, as his/her permanent residence, any property within the legal boundaries of the Village of Itasca, whether the property is owned or rented. To get a library card, you’ll need to fill out a registration form AND provide two pieces of identification that verify your identity and residence.  If a photo I.D. shows your current Itasca address, only one additional acceptable item with proof of a current Itasca address, such as a current utility bill, is needed.  The following documents containing your name and address will be accepted as verification:

  • Drivers License
  • Credit Card
  • Printed Check
  • Lease
  • Printed Bill
  • Medicare card

If you would like instant access to our digital collection or online resources you can fill out an application for a digital library card. When you are ready you can turn your digital card into a physical card at the patron services desk.

Non-Itasca Residents may apply for a library card but will be charged a fee based off a state formula related to property taxes. Non-residents must apply for a card at the library within their high school district. Please bring the necessary pieces of identification AND your most recent property tax statement when applying for a non-resident card at ICL.
