Get a Library Card

If you live within the city limits of Amboy, you may get a library card free of charge, as part of your tax-supported library service.  If you live outside Amboy's city limits, you may purchase a non-resident card for $50 which entitles you to the borrowing privileges of a City of Amboy resident for a period of one year. 


Your library card allows you to:

  • Borrow books from us and from most other public libraries in Illinois.
  • Use special online collections to find magazine articles and information you can't get just by searching the web.
  • The ability to make interlibrary loan (ILL) requests for materials not found on our shelves.


To get a library card, stop by the circulation desk with a recent piece of mail that shows your current address.
