Updates and more information

April 4, 2024: 

The Downers Grove Public Library’s Student Library Card program will make library cards available to all students in District 58 as part of an intergovernmental agreement recently signed between the two entities.

During District 58’s registration process, parents can sign their students up to receive a library card. Students will receive their library cards for the 2024-2025 school year. Student Library Cards may be used in the same way as a regular library card, providing access to books, research databases, and study room spaces. "I am so glad that this partnership can further our already strong partnership with District 58.  Thousands of children will receive their very own library card which will give them access to all of the amazing physical and digital resources the library offers.  In addition, teachers will be able to use these resources in their classrooms to supplement and enhance their lessons,” said DGPL Children’s Services Manager Allyson Renell.
