Get a Library Card

Don't have a library card? No problem! We can email you a library card number so you can access all of our digital collection and online resources. Just fill out the online application and we'll be in touch. 

Within 60 days, you’ll need to stop in with a current ID or piece of mail to verify your name and address and pick up your physical card.

Library cards are issued to residents of Lake Villa Township. There is no fee.

What You Need


Identification that shows who you are and where you live.
Examples:     

  • A driver’s license
  • State ID card
  • Utility bill

Library cards for people under the age of 16 require a parent or legal guardian’s signature.

Your LVDL card allows you to borrow material from most public libraries in Illinois. If you have a library card from another library in Illinois, we will let you borrow our materials, but we will ask to see an ID.
