Non-Resident Fee Program Information

In Illinois, people living outside the service area of a public library are considered non-residents. Non-residents are eligible to purchase a library card from a participating public library under certain conditions. Non-residents apply for a non-resident library card at the closest public library determined by the location of their residence. The public library in the school district of the non-resident’s principal residence is determined to be the closest public library. A non-resident may claim a commonality of community interest to apply at a public library that is closer to their residence. Non-resident cards include reciprocal borrowing privileges. The sale of a library card to a non-resident is covered by the Illinois Statues, 75 ILCS 5/4-7(12) and 75 ILCS 16/30-55.60 specifically.

 

Below are listed the non-resident fees for FY 2017.
The System Average is $90.56

TB = Tax Bill Method
* These Non-Participating libraries do not sell non-resident cards but will honor non-resident cards from other libraries.
