If you live in Park Ridge, you may apply for a library card at Patron Services on the first floor. Library cards are good for three years and must be renewed in-person with proper ID. You can also apply for a temporary online library card that is good for 14 days giving you time to bring in your photo ID to pick up your physical card.
Check out our online calendar featuring classes, concerts, book discussions, and activities for kids, teens and adults. Take a class in The Studio, our makerspace (right), attend a program on a timely topic, or get yourself or your favorite little artist or music fan into a concert or class.

Do you have the perfect lecture, workshop, concert, or presentation for the Library? Let us know by filling out the Program Proposal form. If your program fits our programming needs and budget, a Library staff member will contact you for more information. The program calendar fills up several months in advance, so please allow plenty of time.
If you're a cardholder, you may already receive our weekly e-newsletter. If you're not getting it, sign up here so you don't miss out!
Volunteering at the Library gives you the opportunity to give back to your community. We have volunteer opportunities for adults, high school and 7th and 8th grade students.

A donation to the Park Ridge Public Library speaks volumes about our community and our future. The Library's collections are enhanced by donations of materials. Monetary donations support collection growth and improvements which would not be possible without the generosity of our donors.
