Library Cards

Patrons who live in the Fremont Library District can obtain a card from this library.

To find your district information, enter your address at the Lake County Maps Online and click on your property and scroll down.

Come to the Checkout Desk of the library two forms of valid ID, including 1 photo ID:

  • Valid Driver's license, State of Illinois ID card, Matricula card
  • Valid passport
  • Utility bill (dated within the last 3 months)
  • Rental agreement
  • Property title or mortgage

Children of any age can get a card, but patrons under age 18 must have a parent complete and sign the application. Both the parent and child must be present and the parent must provide ID as outlined above. Cards issued to patrons under the age of 18 will expire on the child’s 18th birthday, at which point the 18-year-old may sign accepting responsibility for their own card.

All adult cards will expire every three years. After expiration, you will need to show proof of residency to reactivate the card.

What if I don't live in the Fremont Public Library District?

People who live outside of our library district are welcome to check out books and other materials, but must use the card issued to them by their library. This card needs to be registered in our computer system, which can be done at the Checkout Desk. The card being registered must be in good standing at the issuing library, and the patron must present valid ID.

To report a lost or stolen card, call (847) 566-8702 so we can bar the card from being used by anyone else. Please note that patrons are responsible for all items checked out on their cards.
