Celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month!


September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and we’ll be celebrating the power of your library card all month. Stop by the library for great pop up crafts, take your photo with our giant library card, spot the book bike around town, and, of course, sign up for and use a Wilmette library card!

Sign up for a Library Card

Getting a Wilmette library card is simple. Cards are available for all ages, and give you access to our physical collection of books, DVDs, Library of Things, and more; our online collection of downloadable books and streaming media; and borrowing privileges at libraries throughout the north shore and beyond. Learn more about signing up for a library card.

The Value of your Card

A library card can be one of the best deals in your wallet. You can save thousands of dollars each year by checking items out from the library instead of buying them. Use our Library Use Value Calculator to see just what a great deal you’re getting with your card.
