Library CardsFremont Library Cards come in multiple colors

Patrons must have a library card to borrow materials from the library, including eBooks, and to access other online databases.

Once you have your library card you can enter it into the Library App on your phone to create a virtual card complete with barcode which you can use at checkout or refer to if your card is not with you.

How to Get a Library Card

  • To get a Fremont card you must live within our library district. Find your library district by looking at your property tax bill or enter your address at Lake County Maps Online. After entering your address into the search, click on the Layer List button (looks like 3 pieces of paper) and select District then Library Districts.
  • Once you confirm that we are your library, come to the library or call us to arrange getting your library card through our Drive-Up Window.
  • To show you live in our district you'll need to present two forms of valid ID, including a photo ID. 

Acceptable forms of identification are:

  • Valid Driver's license, State of Illinois ID card, Matricula card
  • Valid passport
  • Utility bill (dated within the last 3 months)
  • Rental agreement
  • Property title or mortgage

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.

If you do not use your card for 3 years it will be removed from the system. To prevent your card being removed due to lack of use, please log into the library's catalog using your library card number or borrow materials at least once every three years.

What if I don't live in the Fremont Public Library District?

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.

What if I am living in the DISTRICT temporarily or don't have a permanent home?

People who are visiting relatives, working as a nanny or exchange student or a similar situation may obtain a card with a limited expiration date by coming in with their host. People who may be in a transitory home situation may show a photo ID to obtain a card that expires after 6 months.

Replacement Cards

Lost cards can be replaced at the Checkout Desk at no charge. Once you know your card is lost, please call the library immediately to ensure no one else charges out items with your card.

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.

Please note that patrons are responsible for all items checked out on their cards.

More information can be found in our Circulation Policy.
