Library Card


All residents of North Riverside are entitled to a library card. To receive your card, please visit the library and bring:

  • Proof of Address
  • Photo ID

Please note that one form of identification can act as both proof of address and photo ID. If you are under 18, a parent or guardian must accompany you for you to receive a library card.

Library Card Benefits

Because your library is a member of SWAN, your library card will be honored at any of the public libraries in the SWAN System (See List of SWAN Member Libraries), as well as at public libraries in several other library systems in Illinois, including the Chicago Public Library.

Museum Passes

Your library card also allows you to receive admission or a special discount at several participating Chicago area museums and cultural destinations, including the Brookfield Zoo, Cantigny Park, LEGOLAND, and many more (See List of Participating Museums).
