Evanston Resident Borrower's Card
Permanent residents of Evanston over the age of 18 may apply for a Borrower’s Card at the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the Main Library, if they:
- Present a photo ID;
- Present proof of a current Evanston address, such as a current utility bill;
- Pay a $50.00 fee per three months of privileges; and
- Provide a valid e-mail address.
Please note that the Evanston Resident Borrower's card does not include borrowing privileges from Interlibrary Loan, the Music Listening Center, Multimedia, Law, Health Sciences, Art, Core, or Reserve Collections. The Library is unable to offer permanent or remote access to our online databases, but any library guest can request a free temporary NetID (or "day pass") for use on the premises (see Guest NetIDs ).
