Get a Library Card


If you live in Elizabeth Township, you may get a library card free of charge, as part of your tax-supported library service.
Your library card allows you to:
  • Borrow books from us and from most other public libraries in Illinois.
  • Use special online collections to find magazine articles and information you can't get just by searching the web.
To get a library card simply come into the library and fill out an application, provide two (2) forms of identification, and bring a parent or guardian if under 14 years of age.
If you live outside Elizabeth Township, but within the River Ridge School District you can purchase a Non-resident Card for $60.00 per year. Non-resident cards provide the same services as a resident card.
We also issue Reciprocal Borrower cards to anyone that has a valid library card from an IL Public Library. Please bring your card with you when requesting an Elizabeth card. Reciprocal Borrower's may not order books through inter-library loan at the Elizabeth library.
