Riverside Public Library cards will be issued to Riverside residents who provide proof of identity and eligibility. There is no minimum age for obtaining a card. However, the signature of a parent or legal guardian is required for all new applicants under the age of 18.
The library will not issue cards or provide services to patrons who are known to have outstanding fines or other obligations at any library in Illinois.
Adults are responsible for their own cards as well as those of any minor children they have signed for and for all material borrowed with these cards.
Patrons should report lost or stolen cards immediately. Materials checked out on a card up to the time it is reported lost or stolen are the responsibility of the card holder. Patrons should also notify the library of any change in address, name, telephone number or email address.
Library privileges will not be renewed for any card holder who has unpaid fines or charges. Parents or guardians are responsible for any fines or charges on cards issued to their minor children.
The library reserves the right to revoke or restrict the use of a patron's card if borrowing privileges or library policies are abused.
How to Apply
Simply provide proof of residency with a current Illinois Driver's License, utility bill, bank statement, lease or tax bill and proof of identity with photo ID (License or State ID). Fill out a registration form providing one reference, valid phone number and email if available.
