Library Card Month


September is Library Card Month, and we want to get even more residents using their library card or signing up for one with two prize drawings!

There are two ways to win:

1) Apply for a library card during the month of September and you will be entered in the first drawing.


2) If your card is expired, renew it at any time during the month of September and use it, and you'll be entered into a drawing.

Both winners will receive a $50 Target gift card. Drawings will be held October 1; winners will be announced via phone call. 

Library cards are issued to all Park Ridge residents, and to students attending school in Park Ridge, free of charge. To apply for a Library card, visit: 

or call the Library’s Patron Services department at: 847-825-3123.

To get your physical library card, just bring proof of residency with your current home address (driver's license, state ID card, checkbook, utility bill or lease) to the Patron Services Desk in the lobby—it only takes a few minutes to obtain a card and cards are valid for three years.
