Get a Library Card
Most residents of Winnetka, Northfield, and Kenilworth are entitled to a Library Card. Please follow the link below to get started. In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection act, you must be 13 or older in order to complete this registration.
Residents and property owners of the Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District are taxed for library service on their real estate tax bills. A Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District card can be obtained upon display of a valid government-issued photo identification card and proof of current address within the District. District resident and property owner library cards expire after three years and must be renewed with presentation of identification and proof of current address.
If the photo identification does not have the patron’s current address, then the patron must bring in any of the following documents in addition to their photo identification:
- Property Tax Bill (for the current year)
- Home Ownership Contract (for the current year)
- Checkbook with full name and address
- Utility Bill (within the last 60 days)
- Lease, rental, or mortgage agreement (for the current year)
Teens (ages 16-17) may register for a card given that appropriate proof of residence can be provided.
Children (ages newborn-15) may register for a card if accompanied by a parent or designated guardian. The parent or guardian must provide appropriate proof of residence. The parent or guardian who registers the child is fully responsible for all materials selected for or by the child and any fines or fees resulting from library use.
Non-residents who qualify for the State of Illinois “Cards for Kids” exception should contact Customer Relations Manager Courtney Volny (firstname.lastname@example.org).
