Check Out Materials


It’s easy to get a Bensenville Public Library card. You qualify for a library card if you meet the following requirements:

1) Live within the Bensenville Library District

2) Provide your drivers license or 2 other forms of identification that establish your current Bensenville address:

  • Utility bill
  • Check or savings book
  • Postmarked letter
  • Rental agreement
  • Mortgage forms

Children that don’t have a library card yet must be 5-years-old to get one. A parent must be with them when they apply in order to show name and current address.
