How to get a library card

Do you and your kids have updated library cards? Winnebago Public Library District cards need to be renewed every two years. Perhaps you've never signed up for a card before?

To sign up for a card, simply bring in one form of photo ID and one form of non-photo ID (see lists below) any time the library is open. Children under the age of 18 years old will need to have their parent's produce documentation on their behalf. We will ask you to fill out a registration card and enter you into our system.

Acceptable proofs of current residency:


Please consider a donation to your local library- the Winnebago Public Library. Donations to the library are fully tax deductible. If you can only make donations to those holding IRS 501 (C)(3) status, we can accommodate that. A wish list is available at our service desk as well. For more information please contact the library and ask to speak to Interim Director Katie Schmoyer.

Some Items we are looking for:
TV Shows on DVD/Blu-Ray (no VHS please)
Display Case for showing local art, pictures, WPL History
Coffee Cart
Better Staff Workroom Chairs
Storytime Reading Area Rug*
