Get a Library Card
New: Digital library card registration
Westmont Residents—Sign up for a digital card to access our online resources while the building is closed. Use your digital Westmont Public Library card to enjoy free ebooks, music, movies, databases, and more from home!
Digital cards are valid for 90 days. Once the library building has reopened, you will be able to verify your account in person to extend your registration. If you need assistance, please email the Main Desk at [email protected].
Please note that due to COPPA laws only individuals 13 years of age or older can register online for a digital library card. For registering anyone under the age of 13, please reach out to Marcy Biala at [email protected]
All Westmont residents are invited to get a Westmont Public Library card!
Your Westmont Library card will connect you to nearly 100 other area libraries and more than 8 million items in the SWAN consortium.
To receive and maintain a library card, residents of Westmont must present proof of residency within the Village of Westmont boundaries. An Illinois Driver’s License or an Illinois State Identification Card with a valid Westmont address will suffice in most cases. If the above identification is not available, then a recently dated piece of official mail with the applicant’s current address must be presented. Library cards will be valid for three years or until the patron no longer owns or rents property in Westmont.
