  1. A valid photo ID (i.e. state ID card, drivers license, clinic card)
  2. Two (2) proofs of residency - utility bill, credit card bill, voting card, insurance card (if the photo ID has the current address, it counts as 1 (one) proof of residency)

Renewing Your Library Card

To renew your SFVPLD library card, visit the Circulation Desk with your current card. To renew, you will need:

  • Your Library card
  • There is a $5 fee to replace lost cards that are not expired
    (Replacement and renewal of expired library cards is free)
  • Complete payment of any standing fines or bills under your name from any SWAN System library.
SFVPLD accepts various forms of payment: cash, personal check, and credit card.
 

Using Your Card at Non-SWAN Libraries
 
SFVPLD patrons may register their cards at non-SWAN Libraries, such as Chicago Public Library, to checkout items from other library systems throughout the Illinois. Applicants must complete that library's application process and present the following:
  1. A valid picture ID
  2. A valid library card in good standing (must owe less than $5 in late fees)
Patrons of Non-SWAN libraries, such as Chicago Public Library, are also eligible to be registered as reciprocal borrowers at SFVPLD. The requirements are the same: a valid picture ID & valid library card in good standing.
