Now Available: Apply for a Library Card from Home!

Our building may currently be closed, 
but our library is always open 24/7 online!

In order to serve our community as effectively as possible during Governor Pritzker's stay-at-home order for our library, as well as local schools who are conducting e-learning through the end of the school year, we are now accepting online library card applications from home!

How to Get Your Card:

A staff member will email you your new library card number for immediate use; you will be able to pick up your physical library card after the library reopens.

Note: For a limited time, Limestone Township Library District will issue temporary cards to those residing within the Herscher school district, but reside outside Limestone Township and Bonfield*. Cards are meant to offer e-resources for the duration of the school year, and to allow the opportunity to try out the many e-resources LTLD has to offer. Temporary cards will expire June 5, 2020, unless renewed, and accompanied by the annual non-resident payment of $123.00 (or 2 payments of $61.50).
