If you have a Palos Park address and do not have a library card you can sign up for a digital card to access all of our online resources including eBooks, eAudiobooks, online databases, homework help, and more.
The digital library card is temporary. After registering for one you will receive an email with expiration details. When it expires you will  need to visit the library and verify residency to continue card privileges.
You must be 13 years old to register.
Obtaining a library card


Any resident of incorporated Palos Park over the age of six is eligible for a library card. 

If you live in an unincorporated area and the Palos Park Public Library is the closest public library to your home, you can purchase a non-resident Palos Park Public Library card for your household that is good for one year.


This fee is equal to what the Library Tax is currently for residences within the Village of Palos Park limits. Please contact the library at (708) 448-1530 for current fee. 

Your Palos Park library card may be used at more than 75 libraries in the Chicago area.

To obtain a library card:

  • Bring in one piece of identification with your current Palos Park address.

  • Fill out a card application and your new card will be prepared.

  • To renew your card, bring in identification with current address.
