Library Cards
Library cards are available to residents of incorporated Oak Brook free of charge and are valid for three years. All library cards have an expiration date. When your card is renewed, library staff will verify your information and change the expiration date.

To obtain or renew a library card, residents must complete a library card application and provide identification showing proof of Oak Brook residency and valid picture identification or a driver’s license. Children under the age of eighteen (18) must have a parent/guardian signature. Parents of minors may provide identification for their child at the time of card application. Registration for internet use may also be completed when registering for a library card.
Nonresidents (unserved by another public library) may purchase a card valid for use at Oak Brook Library. Visit the library or call the Circulation Desk for details.
Patrons registered at other Illinois public libraries may register as reciprocal borrowers provided they possess a library card in good standing from their home library. Please provide picture identification and your valid library card at the Circulation Desk.
Courtesy cards are available for businesses located within incorporated Oak Brook. Call the Circulation Supervisor for more information.
