Illinois Library Non-Resident Program

In Illinois, Illinois residents living outside the taxing area of a public library (outside of the municipality or library district service area) are considered non-residents for the purpose of library cards. Non-residents have the option to access library services by annually purchasing a library card, which includes reciprocal borrowing privileges, from a participating public library under certain conditions:

  • Non-residents must 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.

The sale of a library card to a non-resident is covered by the Illinois Statutes 75 ILCS 5/4-7(12) and 75 ILCS 16/30-55.60.

Public Libraries: Submit Your Non-Resident Card Program and Fee Status for FY2022

DEADLINE: JUNE 30, 2021

Each year, the Illinois State Library asks trustees of public libraries to determine whether or not their libraries will sell non-resident cards and, if so, what fees will be charged: The public library board of trustees shall annually take action to decide whether to issue non-resident library cards during the ensuring 12 months. At that time, the non-resident library card fee formula and fee, if applicable, to be used will be determined and adopted (Administrative Code: ILAC 23ILAC 3050.20 a). Illinois Heartland Library System collects and publishes this information for IHLS-member libraries as required by the Illinois State Library. You can read more about the process on the Illinois State Library website

For FY2022, all IHLS-member public libraries should submit their library's Non-Resident Program participation status and associated fees by the end of each preceding fiscal year. Please submit your library's Non-Resident Program participation status and fee information survey here or using the button below. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact one of our staff below.
