Card application for schools


Dear Principal,

It is time to update the school library card issued to your school by the Des Plaines Public Library.

Please return one signed copy of this letter along with one piece of photo identification such as a photocopy of his/her driver’s license or state identification card for the person who will keep the library card and is designated as the school representative.

Upon receiving the current information, we will update your school’s record in our system. The school is responsible for all items checked out on the card. It is valid for the school year and cannot be photocopied; however, the library card number may be put on a smartphone with our mobile app (see for more information.)

If you would like to authorize more than one individual to use the card, please attach a list of names. All authorized staff will need to present the school library card or have it on a smartphone to checkout. If the school library card should become lost at any time, please notify the library immediately.


I designate (please print) to be the school representative for the (year) school year.

Signature of Principal
