Do you have your new Fox Lake District Library card?
We’re proud to announce that we’ve developed a new library card for the Fox Lake District Library,
and we’d like to issue one to every resident borrower!
Our new library card features a striking picture of the award winning Fox Lake District Library building
taken by architectural photographer Nathan Cox.
The photograph was chosen by our Board of Library Trustees and library director,
and the design of the library card was developed by library staff member Carrie L. Jourdan.
To get your new Fox Lake District Library card, come to the library with your old card and request a new one.
We’ll ask to see your current ID, and if your library record is clear,
with no fines or fees, we can issue a new card in a matter of minutes.
Cards will be issued only to residents of the Fox Lake Public Library District.
