Getting a Library Card

A person wishing to get a Three Rivers Public Library District library card must live within the library district and provide acceptable proof of the current address. A photo ID is required with the name of the person applying and current address.  If the photo ID does not have a current address, one of the below items must be brought into the library in addition to the photo ID for proof of address. PO Boxes are not acceptable proof of residency. The following items are examples of acceptable proof of current address:

Driver's License

Paycheck Stub

State Issued ID Card

Voter Registration Card

Imprinted Check Book

Utility Bill

Credit Card Bill

Traffic Ticket

Lease Agreement

Mortgage/Closing Papers

Anyone under 18 must have a parent or guardian co-sign for their card.

The patron's library card is to be presented when materials are borrowed or other services are requested.

PIN Number: The PIN number is intially the last 4 digits of your barcode.  You can change this within your account, otherwise this will be the default number. 

Replacement library cards will be issued with ID. The first replacement card is issued at no charge; subsequent replacement cards cost $2.00.

Each card expires after three years for us to reverify contact information.  Cards can be renewed by bringing a photo ID to either library location for an additional three year renewal (renewal includes keeping the same card).

Corporate Cards: A corporate library card is issued to companies based within the boundaries of the Three Rivers Public Library District. Application must be made on the company letterhead and must contain the name of the person responsible for the account and any additional eligible staff members. One card will be issued per company and valid for Local Use Only. Cards will be issued for one year in the company's name. The card must be presented each time loans are made. There is a replacement charge for a lost or damaged card. Normal library circulation rules apply.

School Cards: Teachers employed by the Channahon and Minooka school districts are entitled to use their school's account to check out library materials. School accounts allow for six week checkouts with no renewal. To use a school account, you must present a current school issued id.

Reciprocal Borrowers: Patrons from other libraries that are outside of our library district may check out items from our library using their home library card and becoming a reciprocal borrower.  This expires with our library after one year and must be renewed each year by brining in a photo ID to either Three Rivers library location.
