Get a library card
To obtain a Richton Park Public Library District library card, residents must provide proof of residency. The library staff will accept a valid State of Illinois driver's license or other official governmental photo I.D. as proof of residency. However, if the above is not valid the patron must provide a photo I.D. plus one of the following:
1. A current utility bill (gas, electric, cable, phone, cell phone, water bill from the Village of Richton Park)
2. Voter's registration card
3. Mortage statement (no leases)
For residents of unincorporated Richton Park there is a charge of $140.00 per family for a Richton Park Public Library District library card.
If the patron has had a library card with another institution then all fines and fees must be cleared from any adult or dependent child's card before the Richton Park Public Library District will issue a new card.
