- Get a Library Card
Patrons must have a library card to borrow materials from the library, including downloadable books and music.
To get a library card from Fremont Public Library, you must:
Acceptable forms of identification are:
Children of any age can get a card, but patrons under age 18 must have a parent complete and sign the application. Both the parent and child must be present at the time the application is completed, 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 Check Out desk. The card being registered must be in good standing at the issuing library, and the patron must present valid ID.
Lost cards can be replaced at the Check Out desk. There is a $2.00 charge for replacement cards. Patrons wishing to replace a lost card must present valid ID, and any outstanding issues must be resolved at the time the replacement card is issued.
To report a lost or stolen card, call 847-566-8702; if requested, we can bar your card from further use until you can replace it. This will prevent anyone who finds it from checking out. Please note that patrons are responsible for all items checked out on their cards.
