You must have a library card in order to check out materials. A valid Illinois driver’s license or State ID may also be registered with the Library as a substitute library card which can only be used to check out materials. This registration can be done at the Checkout desk.

To get a card from Fremont Library, you must live within our library district (To find this information, enter your address at the Lake County Maps Online (slow to load) and click on your property and scroll down.)
Present two forms of valid ID, including 1 photo ID:
Children of any age can get a card, but patrons under age 18 must have a parent or guardian register for that card. Both the parent and child must be present, and the parent must provide ID as outlined above. Cards issued to patrons under the age of 18 will expire on the child’s 18th birthday, at which point the 18-year-old may sign accepting responsibility for their own card.
All adult cards will expire every three years. After expiration, you will need to show proof of residency to reactivate the card.
People who live outside of our library district are welcome to check out books and other materials, but must use the card issued to them by their library. This card needs to be registered in our computer system, which can be done at the Checkout Desk. The card being registered must be in good standing at the issuing library, and the patron must present valid ID.
To report a lost or stolen card, call (847) 566-8702 so we can bar the card from being used by anyone else. Please note that patrons are responsible for all items checked out on their cards.
Due to high volume, recently returned items may not clear from your account for up to three days; after a holiday closing, it may take a little longer.
All items are checked in according to the date they were placed in the return slots. If you returned an item and it still shows checked out on your account more than five days later, please call 847-566-8702.
